This unique book is the first publication on the art of teaching Persian literature in English, consisting of 18 chapters by prominent early-career, mid-career and established scholars, who generously share their experiences and methodologies in teaching both classical and modern Persian literature across various academic traditions in the world. The volume is divided into three parts: the background to teaching Persian literature: pedagogy, translation and canon, and thematic and topical approaches to the Persian literature class. It includes such topics as the history of teaching Persian literature, the traditional teaching of Persian literature, the political and ideological intentions revealed in the formation of the Persian literature curriculum, the necessity to include marginalized modern Persian literature, such as women’s or diaspora literature, and more applied approaches to curriculum development and teaching.

The meaning of being Muslim has undergone enormous changes in the aftermath of the bombings in New York in 2001. The initial reaction of media outlets was to portray them as a global threat. In social-cultural and political context, they were thought to be unable to fit into Western societies. For example, in a major survey, over half of Australians preferred that their relatives not to marry into a Muslim family.

This book examines the extent to which falsehoods relate to attitudes and perceptions of young Muslim and Western students in German, Australian and New Zealand educational institutions to each other. It also addresses the views, pressures, unconscious biases, presumptions and expectations, social cultural and religious influences that drive the relationship between the two communities.
