Conference: Reading Milton through Islam

Monday, May 12, 2014; 9:30am - 3:30pm

Location: American University of Beirut

Co-organized by Dr. Francois-Xavier Gleyzon and Dr. David Currell.
The conference is expected to address and create new currents in Milton studies by connecting to wider debates in the study of world literatures and religions. John Milton’s works remain the central pillar of late-Renaissance English studies, and scholarship on Milton has importantly enriched our understanding of the political and religious upheavals of the seventeenth-century. Innovative recent scholarship continues to expand the range of relevant contexts beyond Europe, however, unearthing the vitality and resonance of the Miltonic text within religious and political debates across borders, through time, and in multiple languages. One of theglobal sites where this vitality and resonance is being recognized is the Arab world and the Islamic world more broadly. The publication of the first two complete translations of Paradise Lost into Arabic (in 2002 and 2011) invites fresh critical explorations from a multiplicity of perspectives. By exploring how Milton, Islam, and the Middle East address and implicate one another, this conference aims to raise (obliquely or head-on) the question of what Milton offers here, now, and in the future, and to reflect on how forms of the past still inform the present.

Three prominent Miltonists will be delivering keynote lectures on topics ranging from Milton’s reliance on the Islamic-derived intellectus agens tradition, the breadth of Milton’s allusions to Islamic religion and culture, and the place of Milton’s Areopagitica (atreatise in favor of press freedom central to the liberal tradition) in the Arab world today.
