About Prof. Häberl:

Dr. Charles G. Häberl is an Associate Professor at the Department of African, Middle Eastern, and South Asian Languages and Literatures (AMESALL). He was born and raised in the State of New Jersey, and received his PhD in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from Harvard University. In addition to teaching Arabic and Aramaic language courses at AMESALL, he teaches content courses on the modern Middle East through the Middle Eastern Studies Program (MESP), and formerly directed the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES). He also serves as an Undergraduate Fulbright Faculty Advisor and member of the Advisory Committee for Study Abroad Programs in the Middle East at Rutgers. Together with James McGrath of Butler University, he received an NEH grant to translate the Mandaean Book of John in 2010.

Dr. Häberl's primary academic focus is upon the languages of the Middle East, both ancient and modern, and ethnic, linguistic, and religious minorities from the region. He has conducted field work with speakers of several different Semitic and Iranian languages, which has resulted in a monograph on the Neo-Mandaic dialect of Khorramshahr. He is a member of the American Oriental Society (AOS), the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), and the North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL). He is a frequent attendee and occasional speaker at their annual meetings, and has convened the NACAL annual meeting on two occasions (San Antonio, 2007 and Chicago, 2008).
