Professor Asghar Seyed-Gohrab is the new chair of Iranian and Persian studies at Utrecht University. Central to Seyed-Gohrab’s research is the study of medieval Persian poetry (both secular and religious) and its reception in the modern world, examining how medieval poetry, mystical concepts, and philosophical notions are deployed in modern Iranian politics, in popular culture, in visual representations, and in social media.
