About This Talk:

This talk will look at the way in which scholars in the twentieth century have covered the history of Iran from the late Sasanian period to the first two centuries of the Islamic era. It is suggested that what we think happened in Iran is really the view of the historians who were influenced by the ideological beliefs, either as nationalists, leftists or Islamist. Thus, a new paradigm is needed to look at an important turning point in Iran’s history. This change is facilitated through the recent finds of Pahlavi (Middle Persian) documents from Iran.


About the Speaker:

Touraj Daryaee holds the Howard C. Baskerville Chair in the History of Iran and the Persianate World, and is the Associate Director of the Dr. Samuel M. Jordan Center for Persian Studies and Culture at the University of California, Irvine. Some of his books include:
