A book talk with Pouya Alimagham

In "Contesting the Iranian Revolution," Pouya Alimagham harnesses the wider history of Iran and the Middle East to highlight how activists contested the Islamic Republic's legitimacy to its very core. Join us for this important conversation scheduled on February 11 to correspond with Iran’s Islamic Revolution Day.

In 2019 he was the winner of the Levitan Teaching Award at MIT.

Moderator:

John Tirman is the executive director and a principal research scientist at MIT's Center for International Studies.
