Amna Khalid publishes article in Times Higher Education
Khalid is associate professor of history at Carleton.
Amna Khalid, associate professor of history, published an article titled “The Rushdie Attack Underlines the Value of Teaching Challenging Books” in Times Higher Education (UK). Inspired by a revisit of Salman Rushdie’s works after he was stabbed on Aug. 12, Khalid uses her article to discuss the power of challenging literature. She argues that cutting out “harmful” books from school curricula stems from a profound misunderstanding of their power to broaden perspectives and create empathy, among other helpful effects.
