Medieval Studies Book Club: The Emperor and the Elephant
November 14, 2023 · 12:00 pm—1:20 pm · 209 Scheide Caldwell
Program in Medieval Studies
For the next iteration of book club, we will be reading the brand new book The Emperor and the Elephant (Princeton, 2023) by Samuel Ottewill-Soulsby. This work is said to provide a “new history of Christian-Muslim relations in the Carolingian period . . . by drawing on Arabic as well as western sources.” Medieval studies book club is an informal and friendly environment to discuss recent works in the field and connect with fellow travelers across the university. Anyone with an interest in the material is invited.
We will discuss the book over lunch on Tuesday, November 14th at 12pm in 209 Scheide Caldwell. If you would like to join, please send an email to Albert Kohn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All those who commit to joining our conversation will be offered a copy of the book at no cost. Please RSVP to Albert by Tuesday, October 17th and indicate whether you would like a copy of the book and whether you have any dietary restrictions.
This meeting is for graduate students only.
