Title

Emil Homerin: Neilly Series Lecture

Date

2003-02-26

Description

Homerin's lecture, "Translating Islam," presents several views of Islam's creative diversity and culture, the origin and persistence of Western depictions of Islam, and militant Islam's image of the West. A central theme of the presentation is how art and literature can stereotype religion and culture, as well as reveal their deeper human dimensions. Homerin lived and worked in the Middle East for several years, most recently in the summer of 2000. Among his publications are From Arab Poet to Muslim Saint and his anthology of translations Ibn al-Fârid: Sufi Verse and Saintly Life. Homerin is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Department of Religion and Classics at the University of Rochester.
