NAMWAR YUSUF RAHMAN / PAKISTAN / Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology

“Joining the department for my master’s studies was the best decision I could have made, and the time I have spent here has turned out to be the most intellectually stimulating phase of my life. The faculty have wide-ranging expertise, and I have become particularly drawn to post-colonial studies. I appreciate the financial and academic support I received from the university, and I am very excited about the doors this experience has opened for me.”
