Prof. Payne gave a fascinating talk today, and thanks to all who came! I have the recording of the session attached below; you’ll have to forgive me, I had the microphone on a little hot, so the sound is a bit distorted (especially at the beginning with my rather loud introduction) but it’s still quite listenable. I hope you enjoy it, and thanks again to our speaker!

Last week, Dr. Farrokh Asadi gave us a short introduction to his film, “Judith”, an adaptation of Brecht’s “The Jewish Wife”. You can listen to his presentation in the player below.
Many thanks to Dr. Asadi for his interesting talk and beautiful film! از لطف او بسیار سپاس گذاریم.
After a busy and successful year, we can at last begin uploading recordings of recent Persian Circle talks! First is a presentation by Prof. Alireza Doostdar, of the Divinity School at the University of Chicago, about “The Iranian Society of Spiritism/Psychology/Experimental Soul-Science.” You can listen to it here.
NB: Prof. Doostdar had a PowerPoint presentation to go with his talk, so the plain audio may be missing certain details. Also, due to a technical problem, there is a short gap in the recording during the Q&A.
Please stay tuned for more recordings, which we will continue to post until the backlog is cleared. (Apologies again for the delay.)
