First Biennial Symposia Iranica

Hosted by the Institute of Iranian Studies at St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews, on 13-14 April 2013.

Having been founded in only February 2012 and formally launched later that year, it is our pleasure to report that more than 150 people converged on St Mary’s College from near and far for a rich and varied programme of twenty-four panels, an Early Career Scholars Q&A, and three specially organised colloquia. The Review Committee fielded almost four hundred applications from over thirty countries in total, of which ninety-nine of the best were presented at the conference.
