Premodern Arabic Autobiography @ Faculty of Arts, room P319

Lecturer: Stephan Guth (Oslo)


Based on selected sample texts, the lecture seeks to give a brief overview over the most prominent types of Arab(ic) autobiographical writing in the premodern period, not however without profiling these against later developments. A central question will be the perception of the self and its role in the world.

The lecture is a part of the series Me and the World … Autobiography in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.
