    Abstract:
    file is too large for this repository so I list the links below: Link to lecture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xtDwVTndx4&t=43s Audio: https://soundcloud.com/unibirmingham/multilingualism-as-a-stimulus-to-islamic-literary-theory In her lecture, Gould discusses how cross-cultural encounters have generated new literary theories and new understandings of literature within the Islamic world. She traces the development of literary theory and poetics across the Islamic world, from the Arabic domains to Central and South Asia, including in works by Ibn al-Mu’tazz, ‘Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani, Shams-i Qays Razi, Raduyani, and Amir Khusrow. The stimulus multilingualism has given to Islamic literary theory reveals an understanding of the relationship between the literary text and the world that stands to enrich contemporary literary thought, and which will help students and scholars of literature expand their geographic frameworks.
