A Lecture by Anindita Banerjee, Cornell University
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Sulzberger Parlor, Barnard Hall
Anindita Banerjee will discuss two translations of an unusual text of the 15th century — the travelogue of a Russian merchant, which is punctuated and even overwhelmed by its religious invocations to Allah and the Prophet Mohammed.
More than 180 participants, from 100 colleges and universities across the U.S., Canada, Norway, China, and Australia, will convene at Barnard's Sixteenth Annual Reacting to the Past Institute on June 9–12.
