Current research

My recent research has examined how classical poetry and medieval mystic and philosophical concepts are applied in modern Iran, to effect and comment on political changes. I have concentrated on three central episodes in the 20th century. At the time of the Constitutional Revolution (1905-11), poetry became a vehicle for introducing ‘Western' social and political ideas. During the Islamic Revolution, Khomeini used poetry to express his mystical ideals; he also used mystical concepts as a buttress for his theory of Islamic government. During the Iran-Iraq war, poetry became part of the state propaganda, supporting the cult of combatant martyrdom, which in the crisis became an icon of national identity and a means of justifying violence. Poetry was also used in intensely personal processing of the horrors and quandaries of revolution and war. What the three episodes share is paradox: the struggle for political and economic independence from the same nations that inspired social and political reforms during the Constitutional Revolution; the mystic-poet Khomeini who would not hurt a fly but whose political ideology was ruthless; and mystical ideals that preach peacefulness and everlasting life, used to incite people to kill and give up their own lives. The hypothesis in my research is that all three paradoxes are resolved in poetry through the same themes, drawing on classical doctrines and forms, such as mystical love and personal spiritual growth, but making them new, to speak of pan-Islamism, anti-imperialism, social reform and democracy. This research was funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). 

My on-going research looks broadly at the role of poetry as action, in the Persian-speaking world. As a student reading both English and Persian, I was struck by how strongly Persian poetry affects daily life in Iran, while in the Netherlands and in the English speaking world, poetry is highly appreciated, but allotted a separate domain. Poetry is so ubiquitous in Persian culture that it affects the way people reflect on love and faith, growing up, reaching adolescence and death. Classical poetry is everywhere, from the messages on answering machines to the backs of trucks. What has caused this, and what effects does it have? Why is poetry used in political speeches? In the gymnasium?

Other research interests

  • My fascination is with the role of Persian as a cosmopolitan language in an ethnically and religiously mixed milieu, with a multi-layered political structure, over a wide area and for diverse purposes. Persian was used beyond its ‘native’ area (much of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan) from an early period. Persian was introduced as a language of courtly life in India by the predominantly Turkish Ghaznavids. They established thriving cultural centres in cities such as Lahore, Multan and Delhi, and attracted scientists, historians, poets and artists through generous patronage. From the eleventh to the 19th century, literary production outside the ‘native’ Persian-speaking world was quite enormous, exceeding the literary production of Iran itself, as Annemarie Schimmel indicates. When the Safavids established their empire in Greater Iran in the 16th century, and Akbar the Great came to power in India, Persian became an essential aspect of life at the two courts, ruling empires extending from China to Central Asia to the borders of Anatolia. From the second half of the 11th century, the Saljuqs (Turkish-speaking, and originating in Central Asia), spread Islamic culture in a wide area of Anatolia and championed Persian as a literary language.
