.: June 6, 2018

The MEP is pleased to invite you to the lecture organized by SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) University of London and its Center for Iranian Studies on the theme: From Pre to Post-Revolution Ideals of Womanhood, October 18, 2018 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM.

This lecture will be conducted and supervised by Nasrin Rahimieh, Howard Baskerville Professor of Human Sciences and Professor, Department of Comparative Literature, University of California, Irvine. Her studies include modern Persian literature, Iranian exile and diaspora literature, and contemporary writing of Iranian women.

During this lecture, she will analyze how the flourishing of Iranian women’s writing in the wake of the 1979 revolution was told and took place in reality. She will try to know if this phenomenon is a by-product of the Iranian revolution or if it is a direct consequence of it. She will also show that this phenomenon can reveal the role of the woman and her conditions in the Iranian society, and thus more widely the place and the imagination of the Iranian woman in her nation.
