John Ghazvinian | America & Iran: A History, 1720 to the Present

12/01/2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us for a rich and fascinating discussion as historian John Ghazvinian traces the complex story of the relations between the U.S. and Iran back to the Persian Empire of the eighteenth century. Drawing on years of archival research both in the United States and Iran, Ghazvinian explores where, how, and when things took a wrong turn in this relationship. Why did two countries that once had such heartfelt admiration for each other became such committed enemies? And how could the present situation have had a different outcome?
