Special thanks to the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani, community.  In particular, we wish to thank Athanasios Moulakis, former President, and Darcy Wudel, former Dean of Faculty, who approved and supported the creation of this class, to Kyle Long, Director of Communications, and the Communications Office, specifically, Kaitlin Taylor and Bzhar Boskani, who put together publicity materials for our final reading at Cha Hanishab.

Our gratitude, also, to those without whose support a place like the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani isn’t possible.

As well, many thanks to Chris DeBruyn, whose photographs give this book such beauty.

Finally, thank you to the students and their families who make this institution and this project possible.
