Hamid Dabashi [VIDEO] - The World of Persian Literary Humanism

Hamid Dabashi discusses his book ‘The World of Persian Literary Humanism’; a book that he describes as having been brewing in him like a perfect “cup of tea” since childhood - an outpouring of his deep respect for an ancient tradition, told from a non-western, non-orientalist perspective, which he declares is a wellspring of cultural and philosophical resistance to traditional masculine discourses of conquest.
