Say What Your Longing Heart Desires:

Women, Prayer, and Poetry in Iran

December 10, 2020

Anthropologist Niloofar Haeri, a 2015–16 Humanities Center fellow, discusses her new book, Say What Your Longing Heart Desires: Women, Prayer, and Poetry in Iran. Haeri offers an elegant ethnography of a group of educated, middle-class women whose voices are often muted in studies of Islam.
