University of Cambridge Byzantine Worlds Seminar via Zoom, October 21, 2020, 6:00–7:30 pm (UK)
Alison Vaca is Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of History at University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She is a historian of early Islam working on the caliphal provinces Armenia and Caucasian Albania. Her research explores intercultural transmission of historical texts, quick-changing alliances in moments of intercommunal violence, and intermarriage across ethnic and religious lines.
The Byzantine Worlds Seminar provides a venue for exploring the material and intellectual entanglements between the medieval worlds of the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. It is supported by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and Society for the Promotion of Byzantine Studies (SPBS).
