Quick Overview

For more than four decades, Professor Gernot Ludwig Windfuhr has been a pillar of Iranian Studies in the United States. His extensive publications in several fields and the number of scholars he has trained alone attest to his highly-regarded status and contributions to Iranian Studies. Upon his retirement in 2009 from the College of Literature, Science, and Arts, he was named Professor Emeritus of Iranian Studies by the Regents of the University of Michigan.

This volume is a collection of writings celebrating Professor Gernot Windfuhr's many years of teaching and scholarship in the field of Iranian Studies. The articles in this book by scholars in various fields, including those by his former students, are indicative of the diversity, breadth, and depth of Professor Winfuhr's research and publication. The essays range from studies of ancient to modern languages, literature, linguistics, and religion as well as translation and language pedagogy.
