Rasa, movement, and multilingualism in Ibrahim Adil Shah II’s ‘Kitāb-i nauras’ 

MAP is partnering with the Deccan Heritage Foundation, the Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Cambridge, and the Bangalore International Centre for a series of lectures and seminars. From Konkan to Coromandel will present the pioneering work of scholars in various fields of knowledge from both the Northern and Southern Deccan regions of India.

The first lecture in the series, Translating the New Taste is led by Zoë Woodbury High, a PhD candidate at the University of Chicago.

Through an analysis of several of the oldest extant manuscripts of the Kitāb-i nauras, High will demonstrate how its author oriented the work towards a readership familiar with Persian literary models and conventions, even as he incorporated tropes drawn from an Indian context.
