Changing gender roles

The Iranian American Cultural Association (IACA) proudly presents: "Now, All Must Be Shared: Changing Gender Roles within the Iranian Immigrant Family" -- A lecture by sociologist Dr. Ali Akbar Mahdi.

The migration of Iranians to the United States has changed the character of family life, but how? What new challenges, demands, and responsibilities do

Iranian families confront in the host society? How have Iranians responded to these developments? How has living in the US altered the nature of male-female interaction? How has the immigrant experience influenced the organization and division of family tasks? Dr. Mahdi will address these questions based on his survey of Iranian women in the US, illuminating the

transformations in gender roles within the Iranian family and their implications for the Iranian-American community.

* PLACE & ADDRESS: Georgetown University's Intercultural Center, Room 101. 37th & O Streets, NW in Washington, DC.

* DATE & TIME: Saturday, 19 February 2000, 1:30-3:30 pm.

* TICKET PRICE: $5.00, IACA members; $7.00, Non-members; and special discount rate for students with a valid ID card, only $3.00!

* Please join us after Dr. Mahdi's talk for further discussion over food and drink at the Peacock Cafe, 3251 Prospect Street, NW.

ALI AKBAR MAHDI is Associate Professor of Sociology at Ohio Wesleyan University. The author of three books, five monographs, and numerous articles and reviews in both scholarly and popular English and Persian journals, Mahdi's most recent research has focused on Iranian women and second-generation youths in the United States.
