The Iranian Studies Working Group is an occasional lecture series that provides an interdisciplinary forum for all students working in the field of Iranian Studies to present works in progress to faculty and fellow students. The workshop format allows for students to engage in discussion and receive constructive feedback, while its interdisciplinary nature offers a broad range of perspectives through which their writings may be understood and critiqued.
Each session, a graduate student will present his or her research; this will be followed by a brief commentary by a discussant, either a faculty member or fellow student, who will have read the work prior to the workshop. From there we will open up for a general discussion.
The Iranian Studies Workshop is sponsored by the Islamic Studies Program with the support of the Department of Central Eurasian Studies.
Lunch is provided courtesy of the Islamic Studies Program. If you are interested in presenting a paper, participating as a discussant, or attending the workshop and joining in the discussion please send an email to the Islamic Studies Program (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
