Profs & Pints: The Women’s Uprisings in Iran
November 7 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM$12 – $15
Narges Bajoghli, an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies and co-director of the school’s Rethinking Iran Initiative, will discuss the current protests in Iran, sparked by the September killing of 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini, who died while in the custody of Iran’s morality police. At its heart, protestors insist that there is no such thing as political freedom without bodily autonomy. Bajoghli is also the author of Iran Reframed: Anxieties of Power in the Islamic Republic.
