The premise of my presentation is simple: everyone can give a good talk. A talk, however, is a multifaceted challenge. In my short presentation (20-30 minutes) I will touch upon some of the global elements that are at our disposal when we prepare and deliver a great talk. Of the several elements, I will offer an outlook that provides concrete tools for setting the right tone for your talk. In addition, I will discuss ways to practice and provide constructive feedback for (practice) talks.
The body – its practices, construction, discourses and habitus – is a central focus of the humanities in general in the past decades. This is no less true for ancient history, where the body is central in many discourses – ritual, political, mythical, emotional, medical, astrological, philosophical, etc.
