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

Monday, July 13, 2009 - 11:48am
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.

Sunday, July 12, 2009 - 3:19pm

What are the rhetorical parameters of human rights? How are rights defined, and who is entitled to them? This panel will engage with the ethical implications of formations of language in Transatlantic Modernist fiction. The Modernist era saw the development of a host of declarations, treaties, and conventions aiming to codify an emerging philosophy of supposedly "universal" human rights.
