Reception of Mrs. Isabelle Jouteur – Visiting researcher for a year – CURIOSITY team

The interdisciplinary Curiosity team of the Pprime Institute is pleased to welcome Ms. Isabelle Jouteur for a year as part of a CNRS delegation. Isabelle Jouteur is a Professor of Latin language and literature at the University of Poitiers. Since 2013, she has been associated with the working group on the reconstruction of the battle of Actium, confronting scientific approaches (oceanography, physics, mathematics, naval architecture) and human sciences (history, linguistics, mythology). Her research project focuses on the history of the belief in the powers of the remora in long diachrony and the emergence of a scientific point of view on the issue from the Renaissance onwards (magnetism, mechanics, fluid physics).
