Reza Taher-Kermani

PhD

Academic Profile

My primary area of research is World Literatures. I am particularly interested in the ways in which Persian literature and culture are received, represented, and circulated in English literature. From these preoccupations, I also have an interest in comparative literature, especially in studying the correspondences between classical Persian poetry and its reception in Romantic and Victorian poetry.
