This week, I’m sharing my chat with Emran Iqbal El-Badawi, Program Director and Associate Professor of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Houston, where he is also Chair of Modern and Classical Languages. He’s here to talk about his new book: “Queens and Prophets: How Arabian Noblewomen and Holy Men Shaped Paganism, Christianity and Islam.”
He’s here to talk all about ancient Arabia, why other scholars in the field challenged him about writing this book, the role of women in this culture, and to explain how he’s able to research people who lived so long ago there is very little written historical record (it helps he’s able to read in a multitude of languages!)
