FEZANA - Dr. Céline Redard with Prof. Yuhan Vevaina: Zoroastrian Conversations

Saturday, October 07, 2023 12:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


On the third episode Prof. Vevaina welcomes Dr. Céline Redard a Lecturer for the Institute of History of Religions at the University of Strasbourg, France.

Dr. Céline Redard is a Lecturer for the Institute of History of Religions at the University of Strasbourg, France. She obtained her PhD from the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris in 2010 with her doctoral thesis being an edition, translation, and commentary on Vidēvdād 19. Subsequently, she was a Research Assistant at the Collège de France in Paris from 2008 to 2014 and was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Liège in Belgium from 2014 to 2016.

From 2017 to 2022, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher attached to the Multimedia Yasna (MuYa) Project funded by the European Research Council and directed by Prof. Almut Hintze at SOAS (London). Dr. Redard is currently carrying out her research on the Gujarati ritual directions in the Avestan manuscripts with the aim of studying the transmission of rituals in India from the 16th century until today.

"Zoroastrian Conversations" is envisioned to be a Charlie Rose-style interview show that would feature Yuhan Sohrab-Dinshaw Vevaina (Bahari Associate Professor of Sasanian Studies and Fellow of Wolfson College at the University of Oxford) interviewing academics from around the world working on Zoroastrian and Parsi Studies, the history, languages, and cultures of early Iran and cognate disciplines.

The interviews would be conducted on Zoom and moderated by FEZANA and would serve the function of introducing the global Zoroastrian communities to the most respected and up-and-coming scholars working in these fields.

These ‘Zoroastrian Conversations’ would also serve as a forum for community members to learn about the research and teaching being undertaken by professional academics and would serve the purpose of both public engagement and education.

The central premise would be an informal chat, perhaps every two months, where the scholar chatting with Prof. Vevaina could tell us a bit about their background, entrance into the field, their research interests, things they find fascinating about Zoroastrianism and Zoroastrian communities and their wish lists for what projects they would like to undertake in the future.

The two new hires in North America at the University of Toronto and UC Irvine have agreed to participate and such a forum would allow Zoroastrians the world over to listen to and learn from our newest professors and many other speakers from all over the world in the months to come.
