Taymaz received his B.A. in Law from Allameh Tabataba'i University in Tehran and studied Liberal Studies at The New School for Social Research, focusing on European philosophy. He is interested in studying the shifting discourses of emotions during the introduction of modernity in Iran by looking into texts produced during and after Iran's 1906 Constitutional Revolution. He primarily investigates the ways in which literary texts have treated emotions, thereby attempting towards a new approach to the study of peripheral modernities.
