“The Arabs Between Rome, Himyar and Iran in the Pre-Islamic Era.”
Monday 12th March

Dr. Greg Fisher has just published a book entitled: “Between Empires: Arabs, Romans, and Sasanians in Late Antiquity.”  He completed his BA and MA at McGill, before studying for a D. Phil. under the supervision of Averil Cameron at Keble College, Oxford. His thesis work focused on the relationship between the two main Arab clients (Jafnids and Nasrids) of the Roman and Iranian empires in Late Antiquity (c. 400-700), with particular emphasis on the religious, cultural, and political consequences of imperial alliance for these two groups. His area of academic expertise is the history of the Roman Empire, and, in particular, the political and cultural history of the Empire in the Late Antique period. His current research interests include the relationships between large empires and smaller groups in Late Antiquity, and the formation of political identities on the fringes of the Roman Empire.
