Panel and Q&A about the current women-led protests in Iran at 6:00 p.m. today

Dear all,

I am writing to remind you of the remote panel and in-person conversation about the demonstrations that are currently taking place throughout Iran co-sponsored by the History Department and the Women, Feminist, and Queer Studies program that is happening today at 6:00pm. Questions to be tackled include: “What are women and their allies protesting on the streets of Iran?” “What is the way forward for Iran's women protestors and allies?”

Panelists include:

  • Fatemeh Sadeghi (Visiting Digital Scholar in the Consortium on Force Migration, Displacement, and Education and UCL’s Institute for Global Prosperity)
  • Kelly Shannon (VC ‘03; Associate Professor of History, the Chastain-Johnston Middle Eastern Studies Distinguished Professor in Peace Studies at Florida Atlantic University)
  • Kirsten Wesselhoeft (Assistant Professor of Religion and Director of the Consortium on Forced Migration, Displacement, and Education, Vassar)

The event will be held in Rockefeller 300 at 6:00 pm today. The panelists will be online, and Mita Choudhury and Paulina Bren will be moderating. In addition to being held in Rocky, the event will also be virtual, and there will be opportunities for audiences both in-person and remote to ask questions. Light refreshments will be served. The audience can join on Zoom.
