Join us for the EMSoC-SRS mentoring scheme Spring meet-up. Dr Lubaaba Al-Azami will be our keynote speaker, offering reflections and insights on being an early career academic within University settings and as a public historian. Following Dr Al-Azami’s discussion addressing diverse ways to be an academic, there will be an opportunity to continue conversations informally over tea and cake.

Dr Lubaaba Al-Azami is a cultural historian and Lecturer in Shakespeare and Early Modern Literature at the University of Manchester. Lubaaba is also Founding Editor of Medieval and Early Modern Orients (MEMOs, memorients.com), a transnational digital platform on premodern encounters between England and the Islamic Worlds. She is also founder of Network of Sisters in Academia (@NeSATweets), the first international professional network for Muslim women academics. Her research interests include early Anglo-European encounters with the Islamic Worlds, early modern theatrical negotiations of Asia, premodern critical race studies, intersectionality, decolonialism and well-brewed tea. Her book, Travellers in the Golden Realm: How Mughal India Connected England to the World, will be published by John Murray Press in July 2024. Lubaaba is represented by Northbank Talent Management.
