Persian Autobiography Syllabus

Rebecca Ruth Gould
This course covers autobiographical writings in Persian from premodern times to contemporary Iran. It reflects the emergence of autobiographical writing in the first days of Islam and an evolving sense of self, identity, and cultural cohesion, and then records transitions within the political/economic power structures in the geographical region. In addition, travel literature and perceptions of “otherness” are recorded, as well as gender roles, and politics.
