Arabic Pasts: Histories and Historiographies (Research Workshop)

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.
