Academic Activities I am a literary and cultural critic and historian, with a special focus on Persian literature and the Iranian culture and cinema, within my broader interests in comparative and world literature.

In addition to other research projects, I am currently completing a monograph tentatively titled Satiric Modernity: Humor, Affect, and Nationalism in Iran. It explores the role of humor as a signifier for affect within the discourses of Iranian modernity and nationalism.
In part a history of emotions, this project focuses on the intersections of humor—and a range of related emotions including embarrassment, shame, and humiliation—with gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity in modern Iranian history, literature, and culture.
