Free webinar on history of medieval physics

On the Shoulders of Eastern Giants: The Forgotten Contributions of Medieval Physicists is a webinar, happening Thursday, October 20th. It's hosted by the Institute of Physics, and will focus on the history of some great Muslim scholars who have been largely forgotten about in the West. This sounds super cool, and it is free, but you do need to register ahead of time. (Via Sarah Kavassalis) Maggie
