Short biography

Hadis Jahani completed her undergraduate (2006) and postgraduate (2009) studies in Sociology in Iran. Working on “modern identity formation among young internet users in Tehran” as her M.A. thesis, she developed her research interests in identity construction area. In 2013 she was awarded with a scholarship of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) and enrolled as a PhD candidate in the department of Anthropology, South Asia Institue, Heidelberg. Currently Hadis is working on her dissertation on “Memory, Music and Performative Construction of Identity among Yārisān”, under the supervision of Prof. William Sax. Her doctoral thesis is an ethnography of ritual practices of Yārisān as an ethno-religious community in so called Kurdistan of Iran. The main concern of this ethnography is to find out how they acquire their identity as a group by reconstructing their past collectively.
