“Centrality of Tehran in Iran’s Post-Revolutionary Political Landscape”
Friday, February 13th, 2015
1010 Humanities Gateway
6:00-7:30 PM Talk
Tehran has played a disproportionate role in Iran’s political and cultural life both before and after the 1979 revolution. In this presentation, Boroujerdi provides a wide range of empirical data on this phenomena, and analyzes the salience of Tehran-centered political development in post-revolutionary Iran.
Mehrzad Boroujerdi is the O’Hanley Faculty Scholar and Chair of the Political Science Department at Syracuse University. He served as the President of the International Society for Iranian Studies from 2012 to 2014.
