Starting a Conversation: Disposession of Baha’is in Iran w. Pegah Behroozi Nobar
April 4 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for the next Starting a Conversation with PhD Candidate, Pegah Behroozi Nobar.
This talk explores the historical and ideological particularities of the animosity of the Islamic Republic Regime of Iran against the Baha’is , while emphasizing that the experiences of the Baha’is in Iran are part of the wider struggle for democracy and the full rights of citizenship that all sectors of Iranian society are now engaged in. This particular issue has been often overlooked by both Persian and English- language media.
Pegah Behroozi Nobar has been a member of Iran’s Baha’i minority for over thirty years. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.
This will be a hybrid event. In person in Arts 368 or register for the Zoom link.
