Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies

30 April 2024
We have been successful in a bid to attract British Academy funding for a 4-Year Global Professor to join the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at FAMES. This is one of eight new Global Professorships announced by the Academy.

Professor Saloumeh Gholami (currently at Frankfurt University), will join our faculty in October 2024 till the end of the project in September 2028.

She will be contributing to the teaching in DMES whilst working on her project on the Oral Literary and Cultural Interaction in the Zoroastrian Community in Iran and diaspora in the UK.

We are immensely proud that Prof Gholami has chosen our department as the home for her research.
