Franklin Lewis is Associate Professor of Persian Literature and Chair of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. His research focuses on Persian and Arabic literature and philology, Sufism and Islamic Thought, Baha’i Studies, as well as the role of translation in literary history. Lewis has written (1995) on the poet Sanâ’i and the formation of the ghazal genre; on Jâmi and the closing of the Persian canon (2018); on the popular 12th-century Sufi saint, Shaykh Ahmad-e Jâm, The Colossal Elephant and His Spiritual Feats: Shaykh Ahmad-e Jām (co-authored with Heshmat Moayyad; Mazda, 2004) and the genre of hagiography; on the interchange between Boccaccio and Chaucer and the tale collections of Persian and Arabic; and on epistemology in the writings of ‘Abdu’l-Baha (1844-1921). He has guest-edited an issue of Iran Nameh about Rumi (2009), and a special issue of Iranian Studies on Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh (2015). In 2000, Lewis’ Rumi: Past and Present, East and West (Oxford: Oneworld) received the BRISMES British-Kuwaiti Friendship award; it has been translated to Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Danish. His translations of Rumi’s poetry appeared in 2008 as Rumi: Swallowing the Sun. He has also published translations of fiction by Iranian writers, including In a Voice of their Own: Stories written by Iranian women since the Revolution of 1979; Zoya Pirzad’s novel, Things We Left Unsaid (2012); and Jamalzadeh’s Masumeh of Shiraz.
