Ashar (Usher) Mobeen recently commenced his MA in Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Western Ontario. He graduated from McMaster University with dual degrees in Astronomy & Astrophysics and Art History in 2019 and 2021, respectively. His art historical research interests lie primarily in the ancient world, particularly the Near East and South Asia. He is extremely passionate about artifacts and architecture excavated in these regions that chronicle interculturality and cultural transmission/translation across the land.
Planet Earth is the only home humans have ever known and Ashar wants to delve deeper into the mysteries of the ancient world, while inspiring his peers and fellow academics to stand together and help preserve it.
