Sociology Seminar Series Event - Shamim Miah (University of Huddersfield)

Monday 30th October 2023
17:00 - 18:30
S0.13, Social Sciences

In the second of the Sociology Seminar Series, we welcome Dr Shamim Miah who will explore the works of Ibn Khaldun (d.1406) who was a historian and philosopher and is considered to be one of the founding fathers of sociology. This event further aims to discuss the paradox of Ibn Khaldun's influences on the formative years of modern western sociology, alongside its marginality from mainstream western academia. Dr Miah proposes ways to bring Ibn Khaldun into the mainstream through the systematic application of his theory. This event will be ideal for those interested in developing sociology beyond the western canon.


Bio: Dr Shamim Miah is Senior Lecturer University of Huddersfield and author of Ibn Khaldun: Education, History and Society
