F. (Fatemeh) Sobhi, MA
- PhD student at LUCAS
- English literature
I am interested in English literature and comparative studies. My own field of study is English Literature but I also work on migratory narratives, Persian literature, and female subjectivity in diasporic narratives. Interdisciplinary studies that link literature to philosophy, postcolonialism, social, cultural and cognitive studies interest me as well. I also love reading and writing diverse literary works. In my spare time, I enjoy writing English short stories and poems, mainly on the theme of subjectivity.
My other vocation is Islam. I do personal researches and occasional translations in this subject. I have also managed to take part in various exhibitions on the subject of Islam, and specifically twelve-imam Shi’ism, either as an organizer-lecturer or as a consultant.
Currently I am writing my PhD research on a narratological study of Jean Rhys, a Caribbean-British writer of early- and mid-twentieth century.
