A Discussion on Iran with Professor Heather Ferguson
What's happening in Iran? The country has been in turmoil since the September 16th death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini at the hands of the so-called "morality police." With near-daily often violent protests in cities across the country, Iranians are questioning the government's authority, especially in an increasingly global world of transnational protest movements framed in terms of equity and equality. In such uncharted territory, it's hard to know what will happen next. The good news is that Dr. Heather Ferguson, associate professor of history and co-director of the Open Academy, is dedicated to building knowledge and understanding of evolving social, political, and cultural dynamics in the Middle East and the global phenomenon of Islam. She is prepared to engage us in a discussion on this exact topic. Are we witnessing another turning point like the Iranian Revolution of 1979? Let's share thoughts as a CMC community.
