LUCIS scholar Jürgen Paul
From Wednesday 9 until Friday 11 November, Jürgen Paul will visit Leiden and partake in three LUCIS events.
On Wednesday 9 November, Jürgen Paul will offer a masterclass on "Local and imperial rule. Theoretical approaches and concepts." The masterclass is open to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and PhD students of Leiden University.
On Thursday 10 November, Jürgen Paul will deliver a WHAT's NEW?! lecture entitled "Local and Imperial Rule. Examples from Fars (9th-10th Centuries)". This lecture will address the question of local, regional and imperial powers in a provincial setting, in periods when the imperial power declined, and the forms in which the balance between these powers evolved.
On Friday 11 November, LUCIS will organize a Faculty Roundtable on the assumed dichotomy between the nomadic and sedentary worlds. This roundtable, chaired by professor Petra Sijpesteijn, brings together academics from various disciplines to discuss the theoretical challenges when studying the relationship between nomadic and sedentary groups.
