Visiting lecturer will talk about Iran

By From page A7 | February 21, 2013

“Women in Conflict: Female Masculinities in Modern Iranian History” is the topic of a lecture by Wendy DeSouza, a visiting lecturer at UC Davis, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, in Ballroom A at the UCD Activities & Recreation Center.

DeSouza was part of the first exchange group of American students since the 1979 revolution to study Persian in Tehran at the invitation of the Iranian government in 1998. In 2009, she was the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales Fellow, and received her Ph.D. in history from UCLA in 2010. She is the PARSA Foundation Endowed Iranian Studies visiting lecturer now at UCD.

DeSouza’s recent work explores the formation of a modern discourse on Iranian masculinity and nationhood. Before coming to UCD, she taught courses on the history of the modern Middle East and Islam at UCLA and Sacramento State.
