Lovers in a Dangerous Time

In a talk titled 'Lovers in a Dangerous Time': Narratives and Paintings of Layla and Majnun, Dr. Farouk Mitha of the University of Victoria, Canada and the Institute of Ismaili Studies (IIS), situates and then transposes the continuing fascination with this love story, reflecting on ways it holds up a mirror in Muslim contexts, as well as for our current vulnerable and global moment.

This program was made possible by the Ismaili Council for the Southeastern USA.
