Iranian Political Satirists: Experience and motivation in the Contemporary Era

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Iranian Political Satirists: Experience and motivation in the Contemporary Era — A lecture by Dr. Mahmud Farjami, Ghent University

“Iranian Political Satirists” explores political satire as a journalistic genre in Iran since the latter days of the Qajar dynasty. It answers a question that looks simple but is very complicated: “Why would someone produce satire, knowing that this act might be followed by dangerous consequences?”
