- Room 148
The conferences of the School of Abbasid Studies take place every two years and are organized in sessions of two thirty-minute papers that are publicly discussed. The conferences are small-scale; the duration of each conference is four days and no more than about twenty-four papers are scheduled.
The School of Abbasid Studies (SAS) provides a forum for the discussion of the political, cultural, social, economic, religious and intellectual life of the Abbasid Caliphate from c.700 – c.1250 C.E., a time span approximately bounded by the formative period of early Islam and the invasion of the Mongols. The aim of the School is to bring together scholars working on the Abbasid world but in disciplines which would rarely “talk” together – working towards a holistic contemplation of the Abbasid world.
