Many Manifestations: Iranians and Iranian Culture in the Global Diaspora, October 15, 2009

Persis Karim and Babak Elahi

This collection of scholarly essays explores the Iranian diaspora that resulted from the mass migration from Iran after the 1979 Revolution and the subsequent establishment of the Islamic Republic, as well as the eight-year Iran-Iraq War. While recent scholarly attention has focused on the thirtieth anniversary of the revolution, far less scholarship has been dedicated to understanding and investigating the ways that Iranians and Iranian culture have taken hold in other countries, cultures, and contexts. This collection explores the emergence of a new field of Iranian Diaspora Studies. The last three decades have revealed interesting new hybrid cultural forms of Iranian culture that are emerging in music, film, literature, and cultural rituals/practices.

THE CARTOGRAPHICAL NECESSITY OF EXILE

Derek Walcott identified a cartographical necessity of exile in his 1984 collection of poetry, Midsummer, when he wrote:

So, however far you have travelled, your
steps make more holes and the mesh is multiplied –
… exiles must make their own maps

"For you have understood me well: when I say 'the most jewish (la plus juive),' I also mean 'more than jewish (plus que juive).' Others would perhaps say: 'otherwise jewish (autrement juive),' even 'other than jewish (autre que juive).'"
