The broader objective of the course is to familiarize students with a variety of genres emanating from shared Persianate cultural spheres. More particularly, it is a textual study of sources that can be used for social and cultural history. Through themes of travel, community, city, piety and heresy we will explore the texture of eastern landscapes in early modern Islamdom. The categorization of genres itself will be questioned, for this sampling reveals porous boundaries between. biography (tazkira), travelogue (safarname), chronicles, heresiography and religious disputations (radd)]. Some texts will be read in manuscript form as an introduction to paleography.
