Why the Islamic World Is Central to the History of Plague

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Sponsored By: 
McGill Social Studies of Medicine

Historical scholarship on the Black Death, inaugurated in the 1830s by European historians and medical authors, has since developed into one of the most prolific industries serving both the academy and the general public. That body of scholarship—an artifact of nineteenth-century Eurocentric and colonialist historiography—resulted in a virtual consensus, still in force, as to the temporospatial definition of past pandemics, as well as their causes and effects on societies that experienced them.

Iran Colloquium: Satan Conquered: The Iranian Revolution and its Demons

Friday, October 16, 2020 - 8:00am to 3:45pm
online
Sponsored By: 
Council on Middle East Studies, Yale University

The 1979 Revolution gave birth to a political order that defined God as its greatest protector and Satan as its ultimate foe. While scholars have long grappled with the Islamic Republic’s theological master narratives, Satan’s multifaceted role in the Iranian political and religious landscape remains poorly understood. In this talk, I offer an analysis of a range of sources— textual, ethnographic, and audiovisual—to argue that in the past two decades, confrontations with the Accursed One have fragmented into contradictory, anxiety-ridden struggles for the soul of the Islamic Republic.
