UM Frankel Center Event: Traditions Entwined: Writing Judeo-Persian Poetry in Fourteenth-Century Iran

February 3 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Cost: Free

Traditions Entwined: Writing Judeo-Persian Poetry in Fourteenth-Century Iran

Julia Rubanovich, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

In this talk Rubanovich will look into several episodes from the Bereshit-nāma with an aim to explore Shāhīn’s (fl. in the first part of the 14th century) retelling of the Biblical story from a comparative angle, vis-à-vis both Jewish and Muslim exegetical sources, in an attempt to reveal the pool of traditions which Shāhīn could have gleaned for his version as well as elucidating the working techniques and the interpretative strategies he enacted

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact judaicstudies@umich.edu or 734-763-9047.
