This panel is open to papers that focus on the relationship between the natural sciences and ancient, medieval, and early modern literature (before roughly 1700 CE) from all parts of the globe.

Papers may engage any element of the natural sciences, from philosophy, theology, and theory, to inventions and practical technologies.
