The 22nd Annual Mellon Colloquium


Join the Medieval Institute for its twenty-second annual Mellon Colloquium. The colloquium is a half-day public seminar discussion with the institute's 2023–24 Mellon Fellow, Prof. John Mulhall (Assistant Professor of History, Purdue University), on his book-in-progress. He will be joined by three distinguished discussants: Charles Burnett (The Warburg Institute), Peter Adamson (King's College, London), and Thomas Burman (University of Notre Dame). 

Professor Mulhall's research explores the history of science and religion in the medieval Mediterranean, focusing specifically on intellectual interactions among the Islamic, Byzantine, and Latin Christian worlds. His book project is The Republic of Translators: Latin, Greek, Arabic and a New Age of Science, Philosophy, and Theology in the Twelfth Century.

This event will be held in-person as well as over Zoom. Please register for Zoom [link forthcoming] to reserve your virtual spot. No registration is required for the in-person event.
