Afary and Anderson on Iran

Readers of this blog may like to know that Afary and Anderson, who recently published Foucault and the Iranian Revolution (previously discussed here) have published a longish article in the Nation about their trip to Iran in 2005.

They get in a few digs at how popular their talks were (“A lecture on “Foucault and Feminism” at Alzahra Women’s University elicited enthusiastic responses, including one from a high university official clad from head to toe in a black chador”) but most of the article is a political analysis of Iran and review of some books about it.
