Modern Programme


Modern Programme: Professor Andrew Newman (University of Edinburgh

The first workshop focussed on the pre-Safavid period. The second workshop of the three-year Modern Programme project ‘Recovering “Lost Voices”: The Role and Depiction of Iranian/Persianate Subalterns from the 13th century to the Modern Period’ will take place in Edinburgh over the weekend of 19-21 May, 2017. The presentations will be videoed and uploaded onto Youtube.   The third and final workshop will cover the Zand and Qajar periods and will be convened in London at the British Academy in 2018, with the Call for Papers going out just after the second workshop.    Selected papers from the entire project will be published in 2019.  More information about Professor Newman’s project can be found at:
