School of Music presents International Research Seminar - Exploring the Politics of Collaboration: Bridging the Scholarly Divide in the Kyrgyz Manas Epic Other events...
Today, the Kyrgyz Manas is one of the most celebrated epic heroic poems in the world. At the turn of the new millennium it was appointed a UNESCO ‘Masterpiece in the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Mankind’, signaling its global importance. It sits alongside Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, or the South Asian Mahabharata and Ramayana, and although it is much less studied it is arguably much more extensive (in one particular version it has 500,533 verse lines – twenty times the length of the Iliad and Odyssey put together). This seminar documents the lengthy process of constructing a jointly authored book with one of the most celebrated contemporary Kyrgyz epic reciters, Saparbek Kasmambetov. Despite the acknowledged importance of the Manas, this is the first attempt at a collaborative project of this sort.
