dc.description.abstract Sabine Schmidtke, Professor in the School of Historical Studies, will give a public talk on Friday, October 12. Drawing on her research and reading from her recent publication Studying the Near and Middle East at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, 1935–2018 (Gorgias Press, 2018), the talk will explore an area of scholarship that has been continuously represented at the Institute since 1935. The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Institute and will take place in the Dilworth Room at 5:30 p.m. on the Institute campus followed by a book signing. The recently published volume opens with a historical sketch by Schmidtke, followed by essays and short studies by IAS scholars, past and present—Faculty, Members, and Visitors; mathematicians, social scientists, and historians. Their contributions span ancient Near East and early Islamic history, the Bible and the Qurʾān, Islamic intellectual history within and beyond denominational history, Arabic and other Semitic languages and literatures, Islamic religious and legal practices, law and society, the Islamic West, the Ottoman world, Iranian studies, the modern Middle East, and Islam in the West. en_US
