IAAB is proud to announce the 5th IAAB International Conference on the Iranian Diaspora to take place October 13-14, 2012 at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Through a series of panels, workshops, and presentations, the 2012 IAAB Conference aims to engage a diverse array of academics, community leaders, artists, and members of the global Iranian diaspora. In addition to providing an open environment for productive and interactive dialog on cutting edge research, community programs, and cultural productions, the conference will also serve as an opportunity to build a stronger network of Iranians across our various borders.
IAAB seeks original research and presentations from any discipline, with emphases on the following areas, in the format of a paper presentation, pre-arranged panel, or workshop:
All presentations should be between 10 and 15 minutes in length and may be delivered in either of the conference languages, English, and Persian. We encourage submissions of narratives, short films, and personal stories in addition to papers of a more academic nature. With the aim of engaging our diverse diaspora community, preference will be given to submissions that will generate discussion among a multigenerational and multidisciplinary audience comprised of academics, NGO and community leaders, students, artists, and members of the Iranian diaspora and international community.
DEADLINE: APRIL 2, 2012
