As a lecturer in the field of TAFL (Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language) and Arabic literature at University of Bamberg, I currently focus on the study of literature and culture in the TAFL classroom and TAFL and TAHL (Teaching Arabic as a Heritage Language) in the German school system. Additionally, I have a special interest in the Maghreb region and its cultural history.
Close connections with scholars in the fields of education, language pedagogy, and literary studies from across the Arab world are a great asset for my research areas.
AGYA is unique in that it offers both an interdisciplinary framework and an Arab-German cooperation strategy that provide the necessary environment and resources for forming and strengthening close research connections.
