Prof. Islam Dayeh has received an ERC Consolidator Grant for the research project "Polymathy and Interdisciplinarity in Premodern Islamic Epistemic Cultures." The project will examine the understudied role of polymaths and interdisciplinarity in premodern Islamic history (1200-1800). By investigating the interactions between disciplines such as philology, theology, law, medicine, logic, algebra, and geometry, the project aims to gain a better understanding of intellectual dynamics in the premodern period. The funding is 2 million euros and the total project period is five years.
