Add to my Calendar 2021-06-03 13:00:00 2021-06-03 14:00:00 Postrevolutionary Iran: The Leader, The People, and the Three Powers Please join us for the final scholarly lecture of the academic year and in celebration of Robert Asaadi's new book! Date: Thursday, June 3, 2021 Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm (PT) About the lecture: How is Iran governed? Is the state accountable to its society? How have Iran’s political institutions evolved since the 1979 revolution? Answers to these critical questions are neither as certain nor as fixed as much of the existing literature on this topic would lead one to believe. In this lecture, Robert Asaadi will be discussing his new book publication. To learn more about the text, visit the publication's webpage. About the speaker: Professor Asaadi is an Instructor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Political Science and International & Global Studies at Portland State University. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Minnesota. His teaching and scholarship has been recognized with multiple accolades, including three consecutive Outstanding Teacher Awards in the College of Urban and Public Affairs at PSU, and the Best Faculty Paper Award for the 2019 International Studies Association - West Conference.  Zoom Registration Page Can't wait for Robert Asaadi's lecture on June 3, 2021? Check out his Ted Talk video! What people are saying about Robert Asaadi's new book: Asaadi’s book is a must-read for all who aspire to see contemporary Iran as far more complex and nuanced than mere Rogue state in the international system. — Raymond Duvall, University of Minnesota Asaadi’s study is firmly grounded in Iran’s past and present and thus does not fall victim to wishful thinking but rather offers hope gained by application of the art of the possible. — Amentahru Wahlrab, University of Texas--Tyler It is essential reading for scholars of Iranian and Middle Eastern politics, authoritarian rule and democratization. — Henry Thomson, Arizona State University His nuanced and comprehensive study also tries to look at the future prospects of the Islamic Republic and avoids the simplistic binary that the Islamic Republican system will either collapse or remain unchanged in terms of its structure and policies. — Jubin Goodarzi, Webster University, Geneva In this compelling analysis of the Iranian state, Asaadi uncovers the prevailing tendencies of the country's religio-political governance since the 1979 revolution and argues for both the inevitability and limits of reform. At the same time, Postrevolutionary Iran boldly challenges the reductive notion that Iran is an outlier in comparison with other postrevolutionary states of the twentieth century. — Arzoo Osanloo, University of Washington A study with bravado and acumen on a pivotal country that is too often misrepresented. — Arshin Adib-Moghaddam, University of London   Online via Zoom (registration link below) Outreach and Program Coordinator Corinne Hughes Outreach and Program Coordinator Corinne Hughes America/Los_Angeles public
