CFP: Miraji and South Asian Aesthetics, Poetics, and Politics

CALL FOR PAPERS

Miraji and South Asian Aesthetics, Poetics, and Politics

The prolific poet, critic, and translator Muhammad Sana Ullah Dar ‘Miraji’ (1912-1949) is among the most prominent and controversial literary figures in late-colonial Urdu, yet his work remains largely unknown outside of Urdu literary communities. This special issue will capture renewed scholarly interest in Miraji’s life and works, using contemporary critical frameworks to reexamine his writings and present them to a broader audience.
