Salaam! Please join us for a Persian Circle talk on Tuesday, Nov. 22 with Prof. Alireza Doostdar:

هالیوود، شیطانپرستی و جهانوطنی

Hollywood, Satanism and Cosmopolitanism


In this talk, Prof. Doostdar examines the contrasting ways in which Hollywood supernatural thrillers and horror cinema are received in Iran, and offers some remarks on what these responses reveal about attitudes to cultural differences and the powers that shape them.

*This talk will be in Persian.*

It will be preceded by an introduction to the topic and vocabulary by the speaker, designed to help students learning Persian to follow the talk. To join the introduction, come to the NELC Lounge at 4pm (Pick Hall, 3rd floor). The regular talk starts at 4:30pm in Pick Hall 218.

There will be tea & sweets!
Be omid-e didaar,
