Description:
In 1815, the first Muslim students ever to study in Europe landed in Great Yarmouth. Over the next four years, they immersed themselves in Jane Austen’s England as part of their mission to understand the industrial revolution taking place beyond the hedgerows of Pemberley. This richly-illustrated lecture is presented by IAS Distinguished Visiting Fellow Professor Nile Green and is based on his book ‘The Love of Strangers’, a New York Times Editors’ Choice.
