Seema Golestaneh, “Islam and the Arts: Quranic Recitation around the World”

This session will explore the ways in which the centuries-old art of Quranic recitation is used to bring together Muslims from around the world. In “Koran by Heart,” the viewers follow the stories of three children from Tajikistan, the Maldives, and Senegal as they leaves their home countries for the first time to travel to Egypt to participate in one of the world’s most prestigious Quranic recitation competitions. In their stories, we not only see an example of the diverse backgrounds and experiences of Muslims today, but the ways in which art, creativity, and devotion allows for common ground between them all.

Seema Golestaneh is an anthropologist at Cornell who specializes in contemporary Islamic practice in Iran.

The SEL Lab is a space conducive to experimentation, investigation, and observation of practices to cultivate well-being. Central to our work is intention and reflection:
How can we become aware of ourselves so that we are not projecting onto our students?
How can we use SEL strategies to support colleagues' and students' well-being?
How might we use the new (draft) NYSED guidance and resources for SEL in the most appropriate, supportive way?
Each session will include time for experiential learning with wellness practitioners.
