Harvard FAS Premodern Race Seminar: Race in Geography, "Ethnography" and other Genres of Arabic Texts

Virtual Event

Race in geography, "ethnography" and other genres of Arabic texts, run by guest organizers Shireen Hamza (History of Science) and Conor Dube (NELC)

Co-organized by Anna Wilson (Dept. of English) and Rachel Love (Dept. of Classics), this seminar meets every other Monday to discuss pre-circulated readings on race and critical race studies in the premodern world. This semester we have an exciting line-up of guest speakers, including Jackie Murray, Adam Miyashiro, and Nandini Pandey, and we will be tackling issues ranging from the myth of 'Western Civ' to teaching indigeneity.

Meets online via Zoom (contact alexandraschultz@g.harvard.edu for meeting info).
