About the Teacher

Dr Ahmed is a scholar of comparative literature. His interests cover various aspects of literature, art and culture. He is author of America in Literature and Film (2011), Woman in Lars von Trier’s Cinema (2016), and has contributed various articles to The Comparatist (2008), female/bodies (2005, 2006), Scope (2008), Sexuality and Culture (2014), The Palgrave Handbook of Literature and the City (2016) and Bloomsbury’s Lars von Trier’s Women (2016). Dr. Ahmed is an HKU SPACE teacher since 2007.

The course introduces some of Shakespeare’s tragedies in an attempt to crystallise unifying ideas about his thoughts on the human condition as well as analyse and debate notions like sexuality, war, fear, women, identity, the tragic hero, body, space, stage, guilt, language, and madness through Shakespeare’s literature. Tragedy works include Macbeth, Hamlet and King Lear.
