Global 1979 Iranian Revolution: The Limits of Global History

Mar 15, 2021 2:00 PM ET

Please join the Iranian Studies Initiative (ISI) for the first event as part of the spring 2021 "Global '79" series with Arash Davari (Whitman College), Naghmeh Sohrabi (Brandeis University), Hamed Yousefi (Northwestern University), and discussant Brian Plungis (New York University). The spring 2021 lecture Series on Global '79 explores the global processes which shaped the making of the Iranian revolution. The revolution’s global character cannot be understood except in terms of a circulatory system of flows of people and ideas between Iran, the West, Middle East, Asia, and those in Latin America. The invited speakers and discussants will highlight the multiplicity of spaces of the revolution such as streets, schools, prisons, personal lives, and histories such as the Cold War and Global 1960s and 70s.
