The grid is probably enough to bring Iran into public or even scholarly mind in the contemporary world. But does this picture do justice to this nation-state and its diversity of cultures? Besides a psychological desire and a quest for the exotic, discursive representations and stereotypes have shaped the occidental understanding of the orient and the global conceptualization of Iran.
