Mossadegh conference, Chicago
Seminar in Commemoration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of Dr. Mossadegh's
Government in May 2001 in Chicago, Illinois, USA
Despotic rule is the main problem of Iran today. Therefore, historical
democratic experiences, especially in contemporary Iranian history, may
assist the present struggle of Iranian people in achieving freedom and
Mossadegh's government (1951-1953), the fiftieth anniversary of which
will be in May 2001, represents one of the significant eras of Iran's Constitutional
Revolution of 1906. Mossadegh's government, albeit short lived, has lasted
as a model of freedom and democracy in Iran.
For this reason, a bilingual (Persian and English) seminar will be held
in May 2001 in Chicago, Illinois. A number of experts on Iran and Dr. Mossadegh's
era will present their views in this seminar. It is hoped that the upshot
of this seminar, however limited, will be of assistance to the great struggle
of Iranians, especially the youth, in achieving freedom and democracy in
More details about this seminar and the specific dates will be shortly
provided. This seminar will be open to the public.
The preliminary planning and preparation for this seminar are by Houshang
Keshavarz-Sadr (Paris, France), Dr. Mahmoud Enayat (Los Angeles, California,
USA), and Hamid Akbari (Chicago, Illinois, USA).
A Web-Site for this seminar is under construction. If you are interested
