Research Expertise

Comparative Literature

Nahid Ahmadian is holder of a PhD in English from University of Tehran, Iran where she also earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 2004 and 2007. Passionate about European philosophy and drama, as much as fiction and poetry, the move to comparative literature has thus been a natural fit for her teaching experiences as a visiting lecturer at state universities of Iran (University of Tehran and Allameh Tabataba’i University) since 2009.  This has been concomitant with translating plays and philosophy books into Persian as well as producing articles on Persian and world literature (pinpointed on dramatic texts).  Her recent research interest lies in the area of adaptation ranging from textual to stage productions particularly with an orientation directed at the notions of space and time. Nahid has served as a researcher in a two-year project on Persian fiction with the Academy of Persian Literature and Language and is presently a reviewer at Theatre Quarterly, an Iranian journal on dramatic literature.  In her free time she loves to play tar, a Persian musical instrument and write poems.
