Research

Perhaps my fascination with the field can best be demonstrated by the fact that when I showed a tenth-century Arabic manuscript to a second-year student of Arabic, she could read it without difficulty. This demonstrates the unbroken continuity of the literary tradition, which, along with its vast intellectual range, never ceases to amaze me, and which is a vital factor in understanding contemporary developments. Another thing that fascinates me is the way in which Arabic culture has kept alive and assimilated material from older traditions, incorporating them and sometimes passing them on well into the present. A very different aspect that interests me is the enormously vital, semi-oral popular tradition that existed from medieval times onwards next to the formal literary culture of the elite, and also the way in which this popular tradition nowadays switches without difficulty to new media. 

 

Teaching

Prof. Kruk teaches courses on classical Arabic literature, Islamic philosophy and science, classical Arabic literary texts, and modern Arabic religious texts.
