Third Biennial Conference on Iranian Studies
Featuring 32 panels with 111 speakers from five continents, 2017’s Symposia Iranica was the largest gathering of the field in the UK for nearly a decade. In an encouraging testament to the global reach, vitality and scale of emergent scholarship in Iranian studies, we received 20 per cent more submissions during the call for papers than the inaugural event in 2013, with the review committee fielding over 400 proposals in total. Of which under a third were accepted following peer review.
