The Malian city of Timbuktu is one of the world's oldest seats of learning and has an intellectual legacy of hundreds of thousands of manuscripts, coming from three great West African desert empires: Ancient Ghana, medieval Mali, and the Songhai Empire. These manuscripts offer a unique window into their history. Many remain unread.

This lecture will look at how their study can be used to advance our knowledge of the intellectual history of the premodern world.

We are live-streaming all our lectures in 2021-22, or you can attend in person.
