Conference Tales That Travel: Storytelling in Eurasia

By Invitation Only


Time 9:00am - 5:00pm

Location Abu Dhabi

Long before modern media sent stories around the world at lightning speed, good tales traveled. This two-day conference brings together internationally-known scholars and performers to explore the travel of tales and consider the ways in which a common culture of story and storytelling can be found throughout pre-modern Europe, Middle East, South and East Asia.

Convened by

Evelyn Birge Vitz Professor of French, NYU
