Khamriyya (wine poetry). Dr Christine van Ruymbeke, Dr Kiril Dimitriev

This collaborative project on Khamriyya is in collaboration with Dr Kiril Dimitriev who is based in the University of St Andrews. The project kick-started in 2014 with a one-year series of talks held in St Andrews, thanks to a generous endowment from the Honeyman Foundation. Three workshops have been organised (in St Andrews, Cambridge and at the American University of Beirut), bringing together the participants, straddling the presence of wine-poetry in the Arabic, Persian and Hebrew literary traditions. A collected peer-reviewed volume is bringing together essays illustrating the results of the project.
