Arabic Pasts: Histories and Historiographies (Research Workshop)

7 October '21 at 1:00 pm - 9 October '21 at 5:00 pm

This annual exploratory and informal workshop offers the opportunity to reflect on history writing in Arabic. This year, three days of the workshop will be held online and only Day 2 will be in person at the Aga Khan Centre, London. We hope to welcome newcomers to the workshop and to encourage a lively discussion. The programme is exciting as ever, with 25 papers treating history writing from the eighth century up to the present.

Arabic Pasts is co-organised by Sarah Bowen Savant (Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations), Hugh Kennedy (SOAS University of London) and James McDougall (University of Oxford).
