Project Description

Rebecca Gould is Assistant Professor of Literature at Yale-NUS College (Singapore), specializing in the literatures of the Islamic world in a comparative context. Her books, focusing on the modern arts in Caucasus, as well on the classical Persian prison poem delineate poetry’s
ways of engaging with, resisting, and channeling the state’s power from the medieval period to modernity, and across multiple Islamic geographies. In addition to her scholarship on Persian, Arabic, Russian, and Georgian literatures past and present, Rebecca maintains an active interest in the intersections of anthropology, comparative literature, and social theory.
