Amr Ahmed specializes in Modern Persian and Kurdish poetry, in Metrics and in Comparative Literature. He studied Kurdish literature at the University of Duhok (Iraqi Kurdistan), where he has worked as a teaching and research assistant. Awarded a five-year fellowship by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he moved to France in 2002 to complete his curriculum. In 2009, he defended his PhD in Comparative Literature at the Sorbonne Nouvelle, in Paris. Entitled “The Literary Revolution”, his dissertation bore on the influence of French poetry on the modernization of Persian poetic forms in the early 20th century. In March 2010, Amr Ahmed joined the Institute of Iranian Studies in Vienna. His current projects include the formalization of Persian quantitative metrics (‘aruz) and a collaboration in the “Modernity and Modernism in Persophone Literary History” working group.
