Dissertation Title
2013-14 Postdoctoral Fellow in Literary Cultures of Muslim South Asia

During my year at Stanford as a postdoctoral fellow, I had the opportunity to both continue my work on the complex relationship between literary aesthetics  and religious beliefs in premodern Indo-Persian and Urdu poetry and to teach related courses. At present, as a postdoctoral scholar in the Zukunftsphilologie program of the Forum Transregionale Studien and Freie Universität (Berlin), I continue my research on the literary culture of late Mughal India, focusing on the polemical literature on the competence of Indian poets in the Persian literary language.
