About this Talk: 
"The emergence of modern schools around the turn of the 20th century faced much opposition from the traditionalist clerics who had a vested interest in the archaic and declining maktab system. The Jews whose rabbis had less influence in opposing the new schools and the Baha'is who had a modernist outlook and no clerics, established the leading prototypes of the modern school in a critical period of Iran's nascent modernity". 

About the Speaker:
Mehrdad Amanat is an independent scholar and holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Los Angeles. His most recent publication is Jewish Identities in Iran: Resistance and Conversion to Islam and the Baha’i Faith (Tauris Academic Studies, 2011). He is a regular contributor to Encyclopedia Iranica.
