I am a graduate student in Near and Middle Eastern Studies at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich. I am interested in foreign languages and cultures. My main focus is Arabic, with a secondary specialisation in Hebrew, and I am interested both in the languages and the cultures of the countries where they are spoken. I am particularly interested in modern aspects of these topics – for example, Arabic media, both more traditional newspapers but also social media – but have an additional interest in what might be considered “older” literature, such as Arabic travel reports and adab literature.
During my BA and MA study, I have been involved with a variety of research projects. From December 2020 until September 2021, I worked as a student assistant on the project “Arabisch 2.0”, and also on “Communities of Knowledge: Interreligious Networks of Scholars in Ibn Abi Usaybiʿa’s History of the Physicians” between June 2021 and November 2021. I have been working on the project “Arabische Lerneinheiten für die vhb” since it launched in October 2021 until November 2022. Since then I am working on the project “natakallam” and since December 2021, I have been working as a student assistant on “MAJLIS: The Transformation of Jewish Literature in Arabic in the Islamicate World“.
