Description:

2016-17 Jean Gimbel Lane Global Humanities Scholar/artist-in-residence, Adam Talib, speaks on the problem of genre in classical Arabic literary studies. 

In his teaching and research, Talib presents an array of the topics, genres, tastes, and opinions found in the rich corpus of Arabic literature, but he is particularly interested in literary representations of difference and marginality (including time, sexuality, age, ethnicity, language, etc.)
