Political Advice in Islamicate Contexts (abstract below) Date and Time: December 19, 2018 (Wed), 18:00-19:30 Venue: Room 001, Sanjo Conference Hall, Hongo Campus, University of Tokyo (東京大学本郷キャンパス山上会館) Abstract: Like numerous other pre-modern agrarian societies, many of the ‘Islamicate’ societies that stretched from the Atlantic coasts of Spain and North Africa in the west to South and Central Asia in the east
produced substantial literatures of political advice. Often referred
to in modern scholarship as Fürstenspiegel or ‘mirrors for princes’,
such writings offered advice on the ethical and practical aspects of
governance for contemporary rulers, to whom they were usually also
dedicated. Implicit in the act of advising is the assumption that the
advisee stands to benefit from the advice, and the mirror literatures
encompass a delicate paradox: what were the parameters and limits of
the socio-cultural terrain within which an author could give advice to
the ruler on whose favour and patronage he also depended? Taking a small
number of examples from the Arabic and Persian mirror literatures of the
eleventh to the thirteenth centuries, this presentation explores some of
the ways in which writer-counsellors and ruler-recipients negotiated
this ill-defined and unstable terrain. With reference to the literary
characteristics, the political messages and the social functions of
mirrors in Islamicate courtly cultures of the Middle Period, the
presentation offers examples of how a literary genre thatexhibits a
marked consistency, even in matters of detail, across vast expanses of
time and space also responded closely to the conditions and exigencies of
specific historical contexts and particular writer-ruler relationships.
This event is open to the public and no registration is required.
