About Nargis Virani

Nargis Virani is Assistant Professor of Arabic at The New School, University Liberal Studies in New York. She received her PhD in 1999 in Arabic and Islamic Studies from Harvard University. She studied the Qur’an with the Shaykh of al-Azhar Mosque in Cairo and holds a shahadah (certificate) and an ijazah (permission to teach the Qur’an). Her doctoral dissertation entitled I am the Nightingale of the Merciful Macaronic or Upside Down? analyzed the Mulamma’at, the mixed-language poems, in Rumi’s Diwan and she is currently converting this into a book which will also include a translation into English of all of Rumi’s multilingual verses in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Greek, and Armenian. Dr Virani’s second book project is tentatively entitled, Qur’an in Muslim Literary Memory. She hopes to analyze the use of the Qur’an by a variety of ‘litterateurs’ from secular, religious, and mystical backgrounds.
