The Migrations of Islamic Science in Renaissance Europe

Robert Morrison has been at Bowdoin college since August, 2008.  His courses lie in the academic study of both Islam and Judaism, but address, in addition, comparative topics.  His research has focused on the role of science in Islamic and Jewish texts, as well as in the history of Islamic science.  Robert has contributed the chapters on Islamic astronomy to the New Cambridge History of Islam and the Cambridge History of Science.  He was previously a faculty member at Whitman College (in Walla Walla, WA) from 2001-8.
