Description

The papers in this panel engage with the topic of gender in a variety of genres of Persianate literature. Our primary point of focus is on the ways gender can be fashioned and negotiated between individuals, both fictive and historical, and their respective communities. Moments of gender flux, ambivalence, and duality are characteristic of the texts discussed.
