Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of its educational activities,
Iran Academia, in collaboration with the International Institute of Social Studies, organizes
The Second International Conference on Contemporary Iranian Studies on the Subject of

Iran and the Turn of the Century; Experiences, Lessons, and Perspectives

According to the official Iranian calendar, the year 1400 (2021-22) is the end of the fourteenth solar century and the start of a new century. Over the past century, Iran has witnessed numerous major transitions and changes. Fifteen years before the beginning of the fourteenth century, the Constitutional Revolution opened a new political horizon for Iranian politics as the country was waking up from its medieval slumber. Despite this critical historical event, the fourteenth century in Iran witnessed deep political crises, challenges, and tensions that continued through the rest of the century.

The following are some of the subjects and themes that can be discussed during this international bilingual conference:

  • Economic Development Problems, limitations, and consequences of the “Islamization” of the humanities and its impact on academic research and teaching in the fields of humanities and social sciences since the 1979 Revolution;
  • Consequences of Islamizing education at all levels, instrumental and ideological use of education for social control, and the transition from a limited and elitist higher education to mass higher education;
  • A century of restrictions and suppression of freedom of thought and expression and the implications of these limitations on the country’s social and political development;
  • The failure to establish an independent judicial system, the “rule of law”, and to protect the basic rights of citizens;
  • Changes in the norms, discourses, and relationships concerning sex, gender, and sexuality; including the status, equal rights, and participation of women in society, as well as women’s social movements over the past century;
  • The presence and role of religion in the cultural, social, and political spheres of life, the dominance of a theocratic system of governance, and the challenges of secularism;
  • The tension between universal principles of human rights and religiously-based legal traditions and laws (Shari’a);
  • How did water scarcity become a pervasive crisis in the last decades of the century, and what are the country’s urgent environmental challenges?
  • Cause and pattern of migration in different periods of the fourteenth century and their impact on Iran’s labor force and economic development.
  • The role of religious and secular intellectuals in Iran’s cultural and political life;
  • Changes in the social stratification system of Iranian society indicate increasing socio-economic inequalities;
  • Changes in Iran’s foreign relations and paradigms governing Iran’s regional and global policies;
  • Unequal status, discrimination, and exclusionary policies against religious and ethnolinguistic minorities.
  • Demographics (Family, Birth Rate, Population Risk)
