Lecture titled: "KHATAI PAPER IN IRAN"

Abstract: In the study of Persian art, the meaning of "Khatai (Chinese) paper" remains elusive. This talk draws on a wide array of source materials and explores the following aspects: the circulation of the paper in medieval networks of exchange, its materiality in the aesthetic experience of books, and its historiography in modern Iranian codicological scholarship.
