Asia Society Texas Center

Part of the Performance-Lecture series for Slavs and Tatars: Mirrors for Princes. Reserve tickets here."Arguably the most important periodical of the Muslim world in the 20th century, Molla Nasreddin: the magazine that would've, could've, should've was a legendary Azerbaijani periodical, featuring illustrations reminiscent of a Daumier of the Caucasus. Molla Nasreddin: Embrace Your Antithesis includes a discussion of the book's historical context, a case study of the complexity otherwise known as the Caucasus, the figure of the antimodern, and the issue of self-censorship a century ago and today."
