Saints Talk: Professor Ali Ansari Iran, a Short Introduction

Development are delighted to welcome you to the latest lecture in the Saints Talk Series -- Iran, a short introduction by Professor Ali Ansari -- is taking place live on Tuesday 15 December at 5.15pm GMT via Microsoft Teams*.

Professor Ansari will discuss the contribution of ancient, Islamic and Western influences on the development of Iranian identity, the relationship between myth and history and how distinct ideas of 'Iran' and 'Persia' have merged and impact our appreciation of Iran today.

We hope to see you on Tuesday at the online event.
