Call for Participation: Graduate Workshop on Diversity in the Middle Middle East

The medieval Middle East was the most ethnically, religiously, and linguistically diverse literate society in the premodern world, yet it has too often been studied in ways that ignore or do not benefit from the plethora of literary traditions. This workshop invites early graduate students (considering their options for research topics) to discuss the place of medieval diversity in the region and consider topics which cross the communal and linguistic boundaries imposed on premodern history by graduate-level specialization in single medieval languages or subfields.
