The Event: Published between 1906 and 1930, Molla Nasreddin was a legendary Azerbaijani political satire read by an audience that stretched from Morocco to India. Arguably one of the most important periodicals of the Muslim world in the 20th century, the weekly addressed issues such as gender equality, education, colonialism, and Islam’s integration of modernity – all of which remain as relevant today as when the magazine was first published a century ago.
Speaker: The lecture will be given by Payam Sharifi Artist and Essayist, Co-Founder of Slavs and Tatars. Simultaneous Arabic interpretation will be provided.
