Welcome to Asghar Seyed-Gohrab's website.
I was born in Tehran and have lived in the Netherlands since 1986. I studied English language and literature (M.A.) at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, and Persian language and culture (M.A.) at Leiden University. This is also where I completed my PhD on Persian literature and Islamic mysticism.
On this site you will find information on me, the projects and institutes that I am affiliated with and the courses in Persian Studies taught in the School of Middle Eastern Studies at Leiden University, the Netherlands. Much of the information on the programmes at Leiden University is still is Dutch only. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
