The colloquium brings together philologists and ancient historians with archaeologists, geologists (including vulcanologists), and sociologists concerned with the growing fields of disaster studies. Some of the most challenging of the papers are concerned specifically with the interaction of contemporary research on Greco-Roman antiquity with contemporary research in the natural and social sciences.� Bryn Mawr Classical Review.
