Maurice Pomerantz is writing a literary history of Arabic picaresque tales. His research examines how the imaginary itineraries of these tales’ rogue characters reflect the intellectual, social, and economic networks of Muslim merchants in North Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia from the eleventh to the nineteenth century C.E.
