Enghelab Shod”: Remembering the 1979 Iranian Revolution – An Oral History Archive

Archive launch February 2, 2023

“Enghelab Shod” [Farsi for “The Revolution Happened”] is a virtual oral history archive on memories of the 1979 Iranian revolution. As a significant moment in the history of contemporary Iran, a close and intimate view of the 1979 revolution reveals much about the hopes, the fears and the aspirations of Iranian people in their more than a century-long and ongoing struggle for freedom, independence and equality. Join us February 2, 2023 for an evening of engaging with some memories from 1979 as we strive to better understand what it means to live through a revolution.

Event Details – in-person: No registration required to attend in person; please join us Thursday, February 2nd at 5:30 p.m. EST in Dunton Tower Room 2017 – Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada)
