The Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Monthly Meetings: Knowledge on Sale: The Privatization of Sociological Teaching in Iran

I am pleased to share news about #The_Middle_Eastern_and_Islamic_Studies_Monthly_Meetings, a recurring gathering aimed at bringing together scholars and students in the field of Islamic/Muslim/Middle Eastern studies at the #University_of_Alberta. The meeting themes will be selected by presenters — professors and their graduate students.

I as the organizer of these monthly meetings hope that your active participation and support will not only bring our academic community together but also provide a valuable space for the consolidation of the #MEIS epistemic community and meaningful critical dialogue.

Our second meeting will feature a panel discussion titled “#Knowledge_on_Sale_The_Privitization_of_Sociological_Teaching_in_Iran“, with Professor #Zohreh_Bayatrizi and  #Reyhane_Javadi, chaired by Dr. #Richard_Westerman. The program will also include a documentary titled: From Palace to Prison: The Trials of Sociology in Iran, followed by refreshments, a meet & greet, and informal networking.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, January 29, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, at Tory Building 12-15.
