Pomerantz (Literature, NYUAD) invite 20 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

  • Maurice Pomerantz, Assistant Professor of Literature, NYUAD
