Adab Colloquium: The Art of Conversation in the Ottoman Empire

Friday, April 15, 2022 - 13:10

Virtual via zoom.

Today, we often associate adab with the written word. However, in the pre-modern period, the true adib, or litterateur, was one who could perform the literary tradition. This session examines the expectations for gentlemanly conversation in the Ottoman Empire, and how these shaped relations between Turkish speakers and Arabic speakers in the sixteenth century.
