Conference in Honour of Jeremy Johns

Wolfson College, University of Oxford
Linton Road, Oxford OX2 6UD

Over the last four decades, Professor Jeremy Johns has been a leading researcher on the history of the Islamic Mediterranean, particularly Sicily, and a pillar of the advanced study of Islamic art and archaeology at Oxford. This conference, organised to mark his retirement, brings together speakers from among his former students and closest colleagues to celebrate his career. The topics, ranging from Europe to Southeast Asia and from early Islam to the modern era, reflect the breadth of his interests and his impact on the field. We hope the event will be a fitting testament to a scholar - to quote Malaterra’s words about Roger I of Sicily - “most eloquent in speech and cool in counsel".

For further details and to purchase tickets, please see the attached poster or visit the registration page. Tickets include lunch and refreshments on both days. There is an early bird offer which ends on Sunday, 25th April.
