Journey into the world of Ibn Khaldun, one of the greatest scholars of the classical period. Ibn Khaldun was not just a great scholar, but a polymath who crossed swords with Tamerlane and walked across North Africa during a time when the world was in the grip of a plague. His intellectual discourse has inspired many, and his contributions to education and society remain relevant even today.
Drawing from his new book, Ibn Khaldun: Education, History and Society, Shamim Miah will provide new insights into Ibn Khaldun’s thought, with a focus on its relevance in our complex and turbulent postnormal times.
Dr Shamim Miah is a senior lecturer and the author of four books: Ibn Khaldun: Education, History and Society (2023); Race, Space and Multiculturalism in Northern England (co author-2020); Muslims and the Question of Security: Trojan Horse, Prevent and Racial Politics (2017) and Muslims Schooling and the Question of Self-Segregation which received the ‘highly commended’ book award by the Society for Educational Studies (2016).
Shamim is the co-editor for Muslims in Britain series (Oxford University Press). He is also a senior fellow at the Centre for Postnormal Policy and Futures Studies and an associate editor for the journal Critical Muslim (Hurst)
