The Iranian Studies Program and the Persian Student Association are proud to present an event celebrating the work of Iranian scholars and professors at Stanford University. The multiplicity and richness of scholarship conducted at Stanford by these scholars is a source of pride for every Iranian around the world. Our intent is to create a platform for them to share their experiences and research with the broader Iranian community and to become an inspiration for the next generation of Iranian scholars. 

Scholars will participate in panels conducted by chosen students from the PSA to discuss the trajectory that has brought them to Stanford as well as their ongoing research. 

Furthermore, we would love to get the input of the audience members on the questions they would like answered by the panelists. As such, you can submit your questions using the online form or post your question on with the hashtag #StanfordIran. 

A detailed schedule of the event will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
