In connection to the exhibition Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art, the Nasher Museum is hosting two discussions of My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk, translated by Duke professor Erdağ Göknar, mixes mystery and religious conflict in sixteenth-century Istanbul. This novel entertains and challenges as it explores the conflict of European and Islamic principles in an expanding world. In 2003, My Name is Red won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, an honor for both the author and the translator. In 2006, Pamuk was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
My Name is Red is available in the Nasher Museum Store. If you have questions about book discussions, please contact Jessica Ruhle, Associate Curator of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
