Classical and Medieval Arabic Literature in Translation

Dr. Ahmad Al-Jallad

From the absorbing tales of the One Thousand and One Nights to the haunting melancholy of pre-Islamic poetry, medieval Arabic literature is fascinating and inexhaustible. Via English translations, this course introduces students to a rich diversity of Arabic literary texts written from the sixth century to the fifteenth, stretching from the cosmopolitan cities of Muslim Spain to the empires of Central Asia and beyond.
