Appointment of Lady Khadija Visiting Fellow in Shi'i Studies, Sheikh Nuru Mohammed

24th January 2020

We are very proud and delighted to welcome Sheikh Nuru Mohammed to the Woolf Institute as the first Lady Khadija Visiting Fellow in Shi'i Studies.

The establishment of this new fellowship is a notable development in contemporary Islamic Studies towards a more reflective, decolonised and engaged approach to scholarship. The Hikma Foundation, whose vision is the promotion of Shi'i Studies in academia through the establishment of posts in the names of the Ahlulbayt, has generously funded the visiting post at the Woolf Institute for one term per annum, for three years.
