Buoyed by discussions that have been circulating in African Studies and
elsewhere in the Humanities, we want to stimulate modes of
knowledge-production that challenge disciplinary boundaries. In addition,
we want to investigate whether th​ese​ challenges​ constitute transformation and,

African Slavery in Iran, 1830-1930

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year.
At the moment I am working on a photo exhibition with regard to “African Slavery in Iran, 1830-1930”. This exhibition will be held in “Association Mémoire de l'Outre-mer” in Nantes, France April-May 2015. My approach in this project is visual/social anthropology and visual historiography.

I am trying to circulate this exhibition as much as it possible and am seeking possible collaborations. Interested individuals can contact me off list.  

Yours truly,
P. Khosronejad
