This event has been cancelled.

In modern representation, 'Islamic' history is the evolving story of a religion that was born with Muhammad's career and has continued to the present as an exclusive tradition. In tension with this view, premodern Islamic chronicles tend to espouse inclusive temporalities, while also maintaining triumphalist outlooks. Complex understandings of the past embedded in such chronicles help problematize the presumed insularity of Islam.
