The finalised programme has been announced of the conference "From Morning Hunt to Beloved Gazelle: Literary and Visual Representations of Animals from Central Asia to the Maghreb" organised by Charis Olszok, Christine van Ruymbkeke and Christiane Esche-Ramshorn in association with CRASSH. The conference is fully online from December 15-17, GMT and one of the two keynote presentations will be given by James Montgomery.


This conference seeks to rethink the literatures and arts of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Persianate and Turkish lands through the presence of non-human animals situated within their ‘worlds’, whether these be pastoral gardens, constructions of the wild, or the interstices of human habitations.
