Global 1979: Geographies and Places of the Iranian Revolution

2:00pm EDT March 29

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.
