The Islamic Manuscript Association Lecture Series
In 2012 the Islamic Manuscript Association launched an occasional lecture series on the study of Islamic manuscripts. The lecture series encompasses general introductions to various aspects of this vast field, as well as specialist discussions of interest to manuscript professionals and scholars. Two or three lectures will take place each calendar year both in the UK and other countries, in collaboration with host institutions around the world.
The lecture series publicises members’ and other researchers’ work with Islamic manuscripts, bringing expert knowledge and insights to new audiences beyond the Association’s core membership. If your institution would like to collaborate with the Association to develop a particular lecture topic or to suggest a speaker, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
