Andrew Hicks joined Cornell University in 2011 as an assistant professor of music and medieval studies. At the Academy, he is working on his second monograph, “The Broken Harp: Musical Metaphor in Classical Persian Literature,” which seeks to reframe the history of medieval Persian musical culture by focusing on the technical vocabulary, poetic imagery, artistic visualizations, and philosophical metaphors of music and musical experiences in medieval Persian literary traditions. (Photo: Annette Hornischer)
