Lectures on Medieval Arabic Thought

The Lectures on Medieval Arabic Thought aim to provide a forum where lectures are presented on a wide variety of subjects relating to the history of medieval Arabic philosophy, the Arab world, and Islamic tradition in the Middle Ages.

Papers address issues of specific academic and general interest in the field. The invited speakers are drawn from a range of academic backgrounds, and include visiting scholars and associates of the Research Unit from both within the EU and the wider international community.

The Lectures are open to the public. Students are welcome.
