Iranian Intellectuals: Lineages and Legacies

Tirgan Festival is proud to host this incredible series of four panel discussions on the history and evolution of intellectualism in Iran. The panellists—academic experts in the field who have been invited from all around the globe—will discuss the history of intellectualism, and its relationship with the social and political trajectory of modern Iran from the Qajar period to today. Each panel will have a different focus but situate its topics and themes within the overall context of the series.

Guests will be allowed to ask questions from the speakers at the end of each panel. Refreshments and lunch will also be provided throughout the day.
