Northwestern's Colloquium for Global Iran Studies (CoGIS) presents a Talk by Dr. Shahla Talebi: "To See What Is Coming: Life, Death and their Ever-shifting Threshold In Contemporary Iran." The event is moderated by Froroogh Farhang, PhD Candidate in Anthropology at Northwestern.

Dr. Talebi is a sociocultural anthropologist and is currently an Associate Professor of religious studies and anthropology of religion in the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. Her book, Ghosts of Revolution: Rekindled Memories of Imprisonment in Iran (2011), won the 2011 Outstanding Academic Title Award given by Choice Magazine, and was the co-winner (Gold Medal) of the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Dr. Talebi's work has also appeared in various academic journals and in edited book volumes. Her article on revolutions in recent Iranian history was published in the Oxford Handbook series in July 2018. She was the 2017-2018 Anthony E. Kaye fellow at National Humanities Center where she worked on her book about contested memories of martyrdom in post-revolutionary Iran.

The event is co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for Humanities, the Buffet Institute for Global Affairs, and the Middle East and North African Studies Program.
