Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Professor of Iranian history Ali Ansari presents a radical reinterpretation of Iranian history and politics and places the Islamic revolution in the context of a century of political change and social
transformation. Ansari reveals a more complex and nuanced culture than most of us understand. Ansari is professor of Iranian history and founding director of the Institute for Iranian Studies at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of The Politics of Nationalism in Modern Iran and Crisis of Authority: Iran’s 2009 Presidential Election.
