Welcome to the Website of the

Aquinas and ‘the Arabs” International Working Group

Seminar Series

This series began in January 2017 with a series of four monthly lectures by Dr Nicola Polloni of Durham University in the UK.

For conditions of attendance, see the bottom of this page.

It is our intention to continue the series with four lectures each Fall and each Spring. These lectures will be presented by members of the AAIWG via Skype for discussion by AAIWG members and guests.

The format will usually allow for breaks for discussion as determined by the presenter if that is his/her preference.

Video lectures will usually be available before meeting but will still be played at meetings with the lecturer present for discussion.

After the event, the video will remain available in the online archive indefinitely for future study by colleagues and students.

AAIWG members interested in sharing their work in this way should contact Prof. Richard Taylor at
