Dr Shirin Zubair
Dr Shirin Zubair is an established academic in the field of English literature and gender studies, who holds a PhD and MSc in Applied Linguistics from a university in the UK, where her dissertation focused on women's literacy in Pakistan.

She has more than 25 years of experience lecturing and conducting research at Pakistani, US and European universities and was until recently the Chair of the English Department at a university in Pakistan.

The recipient of multiple international research fellowships and awards, including from the Ford Foundation and the Fulbright Program, Dr Zubair has also published widely, editing multiple books and contributing to Pakistani and international journals on a range of issues relating to new literacies, representation of gender, and media. Dr Zubair came into contact with Scholars at Risk after she was forced to flee from Pakistan after facing death threats because of her work.

Scholars at Risk
Scholars at Risk is an international network of higher education institutions dedicated to promoting academic freedom worldwide. Around the world today, scholars are attacked because of their words, their ideas and their place in society. Those seeking power and control work to limit access to information and new ideas by targeting scholars, restricting academic freedom and repressing research, publication, teaching and learning.
