Addressing key themes of the exhibition, Kalila wa-Dimna: Ancient Tales for Troubled Times, Shazia, David, and Rachel bring their expertise in global medieval cultures to this discussion of early literatures, objects, and ideas that traveled between East and West. Focusing on three ‘objects’, the discussion explores the interconnectedness of societies across time and space, and also considers the relevance of early literatures and cultures in today’s multicultural world.
