Berkeley Initiative for Iranian Studies


The UC Berkeley Initiative for Iranian Studies is a broad and multi-disciplinary initiative which supports research, teaching, and programming bringing together a multitude of aspects of Iranian Studies. Its mission is to encourage and support the study of the broader Iranian world in a range of scholarly fields from ancient times to the present. It aims to advance individual, collaborative, and interdisciplinary scholarship through seminars, workshops, conferences, fellowships, film festivals, and poetry readings; strengthen ties across departments within UC Berkeley; and develop academic partnerships with national and international educational and cultural institutions.
