(27 April 2018)

Adam Talib of MLAC will give a lecture on 13 June 2018 at the Freie Universität Berlin's Graduate School of Muslim Cultures and Societies on his current book project. The lecture entitled "Rape and the Reader: Classical Arabic Poetry Comes to Light" will be a provocative re-examination of scholarly methods that erase or overlook the predominance of coercion and violence in Arabic erotic poetry.
