Please join us for the next installment in our "No More Than A Page" series. This series gives an opportunity for faculty and advanced graduate students to receive feedback on their research in process. Presenters provide attendees with a one-page summary of their current research and attendees engage in a lively discussion.
In February, Zahra Abedi will present "The Karbala Myth and Recent Protests in Iran." Zahra's research examines the religious narrative of Karbala and its application to the recent events in Iran by the protestors. For No More Than A Page, Zahra will talk about the functions and significance of protestors’ efforts for finding similarities between the narrative and recent events in the context of religion.
Zahra Abedinezhad is a doctoral student in Comparative Studies and Folklore. Having backgrounds in Law (TMU, Iran) and in Folk studies (WKU), she is interested in exploring intersections between religious practices and social regulations and codes. She is currently working on mourning performances of Iranian women.
This event is free and open to the public.
