János Galamb

Year of Enrollment: 

János received his BA in 2015, and an MA 2018 in Arabic philology at ELTE in Budapest. He continued his MA studies at CEU’s Department of History, graduating in 2019. His main interests cover a range of related fields in medieval Islamic intellectual and religious history, including the historical anthropology of social gatherings in medieval Islamic cities, as well as messianism and apocalypse in hadith and early Islamic lore. In his PhD research at CEU, he taps into his former research and expands the scope to a later historical period, investigating the developments of hadith literature in the late medieval and early modern eras, especially in the Mamluk and Ottoman contexts.
