My courses


I have my MA in Iranian languages from Uppsala University and my PhD degree in Iranian Studies from Jagiellonian University, Kraków.

As professional literary critic, I have been studying Persian/world literature as well as Iranian Cinema during the last twenty-five years. I have published more than one hundred essays in these fields (collected in ten Essay Collections).

I have also studied Literary History at Stockholm University at MA level and have written my BA exam paper on Selma Lagerlöf’s Tjejsaren av Portugallien (The Emperor of Portugallia) and my MA exam paper on Ingmar Bergman’s Söndagsbarn (Sunday’s Child).
