Second Biennial Symposia Iranica

Hosted by the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at Downing College, University of Cambridge, on 8-9 April 2015.

Featuring 33 panels with 129 speakers from five continents and a further 24 academics, 2015’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 in 2013, with the review committee fielding 432 proposals in total. Of these, 175 were accepted following peer review.
