Jan Deeg

Jan Deeg received his BA from the University of Oxford, where he graduated first class in Oriental Studies, focusing on Arabic and Islamic studies. His bachelor’s thesis was on the intellectual legacy of the Persian philosopher Avicenna amongst Muslim theologians. As a student of the Global History program, he is primarily interested in the social and economic history of the Middle East, but is also eager to read more about East Asia and Europe, China in particular, and would like to focus on the social and economic development of these regions. Jan would also like to broaden his linguistic repertoire by learning a Slavic language.
