The Two-Edged Sea

Heterotopias of Contemporary Mediterranean Migrant Literature
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4372-2
Much Mediterranean migrant literature captures the Mediterranean’s fossilized binaries, North and South. But, The Two-Edged Sea also reveals that one inheres within the other. While the book explores two Mediterraneans, with asymmetrical power relations that reflect the sea’s northern and southern shores, it also delves into how they have been in dialogue with each other, effectively deconstructing the binary. Charting undocumented journeys from the Mediterranean’s southern shores, the book contributes both to discourse on migration literature and the current resurgence of the study of seas, while advancing the idea of the Mediterranean as both a dividing border and unifying contact zone.

The Exceptional Qur'an

Flexible and Exceptive Rhetoric in Islam's Holy Book
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0729-8
This monograph examines the principle of dispensation in the Qur’an, which seems to be, if not unique, articulated in a new manner compared to previous religions (cf. Deut 12,32). The Qur’anic dispensations have never been systematically studied and this monograph aims to fill this vacuum in the fields of Qur’anic studies and the Study of Religion.

The Many Faces of Iranian Modernity

Sufism and Subjectivity in the Safavid and Qajar Periods
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4237-4
This study into both reformism and mysticism demonstrates both that mystical rhetoric appeared regularly in supposedly anti-mystical modernist writing and that nineteenth- and twentieth-century Sufis actually addressed questions of intellectual and political reform in their writing, despite the common assertion that they were irrationally traditional and politically quietist.
