Fatemeh Keshavarz

Fatemeh Keshavarz holds the Roshan Chair in Persian Studies and directs the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at University of Maryland, College Park. She is a published poet and author of Six monographs including Reading Mystical Lyric: the Case of Jalal al-Din Rumi and Recite in the Name of the Red Rose: Poetic Sacred Making in Twentieth Century Iran (winners, Choice Magazine Award). Her book Jasmines and Stars: Reading more than Lolita in Tehran was described by ALA Booklist as an excellent counterpoint to Nafisi’s Reading Lolita in Tehran. Recently, Edinburgh University Press published her book Lyrics of Life: Sa’di on Love, Cosmopolitanism, and Care of the Self (2015). The show “Speaking of Faith” featuring her in the hour-long episode “The Ecstatic Faith of Rumi,” received the 2008 Peabody Award. In the same year she was awarded the Herschel Walker Peace and Justice Award. In 2013, Keshavarz was named poet of the month by NPR’s Grace Cavalieri, host of Poetry and the Poet.
