Dear colleagues,

We're delighted to invite you to our new online lecture series, 'Rethinking Social Contention: Rebellion, Banditry and Martyrdom in the Pre-Modern Islamicate World'. The series is organised by our Hamburg-based research group, 'Social Contexts of Rebellion in the Early Islamic Period' (SCORE), and starts next Tuesday (18 Jan), 4 pm CET. Our first speaker is Andrew Marsham (Cambridge), who will talk about "Rebels, Rhetoric and Reality in the Umayyad Era: Violent Conflict and Contention in the Early Islamic Empire".

The programme for the first term can be found here: https://www.aai.uni-hamburg.de/voror/forschung/score/news/2021-12-lecture-series.html. To register and receive the Zoom link, simply contact us at score.aai@uni-hamburg.de. Please share widely with colleagues and students as well. We're looking forward to 'seeing' you there, and to a lively, stimulating discussion!

All best wishes from Hamburg,

the SCORE team (Hannah, Natalie, Alon, Alasdair)
