9:00am – 3:30pm
In this workshop, participants will hear a range of perspectives that contextualize contemporary Iranian history and culture within a framework of regional and global dynamics. Expert speakers will discuss topics including the role of the Islamic Revolution in shaping contemporary politics and culture; Iran’s relationship with neighbors in the Middle East and Central Asia; and U.S. foreign policy on Iran. We will hear from educators who are creating curricular resources that highlight diverse Iranian responses to contemporary politics.
This workshop is a collaboration between GW's Institute for Middle East Studies, Georgetown University's Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, and the Middle East Studies Pedagogy Initiative at George Mason University.
A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
