Dr Hannah Erlwein
I am Senior Teaching Fellow at the Department of the Languages and Cultures of the Near and Middle East at SOAS, teaching courses on a variety of aspects related to the study of the Qur’an, tafsīr (Qur’anic commentary), ḥadīth (Prophetic traditions), sīra (biography of the Prophet), as well as Sufism. I have previously taught Arabic grammar tutorials for undergraduate students. I am also an editorial assistant within the Centre of Islamic Studies at SOAS, being involved in the publication of the Journal of Qur’anic Studies. I recently graduated from SOAS with a PhD in Islamic Studies. Prior to this, I obtained an MA in Middle East Studies from the University of Exeter and an MA in Islamic Studies from SOAS.
