The Shahrashub (city disturber) and / Ekphrases genre of Persian poetry provides a window into the urban spaces of early modern Eurasia, revealing the relationship between people, their imaginaries, and the built environment around them. This workshop provides an introduction for using this specialized literary material to derive scholarly insights.
