Hi, I am Yazid Haroun, an academic and creative writer. I have a PhD in Translation Studies from Durham University. My current academic research focuses on the operation of ideology at the level of Qur’an translation in the process of political mobilisation. I am particularly interested in what a focus on ideology and religion can bring to understanding the notion of translation as a social activity.
My debut novel is on the process of religious conversion, or more accurately speaking on a psychology of a convertor before and after conversion.
