This year marks the 1000th birth anniversary of Nizam Al-Mulk Ṭusi, the Iranian politician, scholar and celebrated vizier of the Saljuq Empire. One of his most important legacies was founding schools in cities throughout the 20 years that he held near absolute power.
To commemorate the occasion, the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad will be holding an international conference on 21 November 2018.
Scholars and researchers are invited to submit their abstracts in Persian, Arabic or English by 6 August, and the actual papers by 6 September 2018.
In addition to speeches and presentation of papers at the conference, books on Nizam Al-Mulk and a commemorating stamp honoring him will be released.
