Prof. Dr. Mohammad Mahdi Mojahedi will discuss his paper “Perceptions of Revolution in Iran: A Comparative Analysis of the 1905-08 and 1979 Revolutions” in the workshop on Modern and Postmodern Perspectives
The workshop is a high-profile event that will feature presentations by prominent political theorists, intellectual historians, and IR scholars. A major purpose of these workshops is to enrich the social sciences’ set of conceptual and methodological tools, while questioning and steering away from elite- and Euro/Occident-centered conceptions of empire and its public-sphere dynamics.
The event is organized by Vasileios Syros, Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of Jyväskylä
