She will receive the accolade in recognition of her numerous contributions to the understanding of classical Arabic language, its history, literature, and sociology. The Dutch university emphasized that Gründler’s work has played a groundbreaking role in illuminating the dynamics of Arabic-Persian literary practice, its expression in the manuscript tradition, and its transformations across religious, linguistic, and cultural boundaries. Gründler will be presented with the honorary doctorate on February 8, 2023, as part of Leiden University’s Dies Natalis, an event celebrating the university’s 448th anniversary. Belgian virologist Professor Marc van Rast will also receive an honorary doctorate at the event.
