I earned my Master’s degree in Translation Studies from ATU, Tehran. In my Master’s thesis, I studied the role of translations and cultural transfer from the West in transformation of Persian literary canon. My particular interest lies in translation of models, where new genres and ideas emerge as a result of cultural transfer. In my doctoral dissertation, I plan to study the role of translations and their discursive macro-strategies in (re)formation of modern Iranian national identity.
