Book Launch: Transnationalism in Iranian Political Thought: The Life and Times of Ahmad Fardid

Speaker: Ali Mirsepassi (New York University)

During the Iranian Revolution of 1978/9, the influence of public intellectuals was widespread. Many espoused a vision of Iran freed from the influences of 'Westtoxification', inspired by Heideggerian concepts of anti-Western nativism. By following the intellectual journey of the Iranian philosopher Ahmad Fardid, Ali Mirsepassi offers in his book Transnationalism in Iranian Political Thought: The Life and Times of Ahmad Fardid (Cambridge University Press, 2017) an account of the rise of political Islam in modern Iran.

The documentary film, The Fabulous Life and Thought of Ahmad Fardid, is based on Mirsepassi’s book about Ahmad Fardid and it is made by Ali Mirsepassi and Hamed Yousefi.

Discussants: Arshin Adib-Moghaddam (SOAS) and Hamed Yousefi.

This lecture is free to attend and no registration is required. Seating is on a first-come first-serve basis.
