Presenter: Walid Saleh, University of Toronto

Walid Saleh is an associate professor of Religion and Near and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Toronto. His research interests include medieval Qur'anic commentaries and codices, as well as apocalyptic literature in Arab Ottoman Provinces. Dr. Saleh's undergraduate degree was at the American University of Beirut, where he studied Arabic literature and language. His interest in these two topics still animates his research, and he is a close follower of modern Arabic poetry. In addition to his doctoral studies at Yale University in Islamic Studies, where he studied the Qur'an and its exegesis in medieval Islamic Civilization, Dr. Saleh has also studied at Hamburg University.
