The Eye of the Shah is the beautifully illustrated catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. The volume presents some two hundred photographs—the great majority of which have never been seen by the public—taken by royal photographers engaged by Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (r. 1848–1896), the longest-reigning shah of Iran's Qajar Dynasty (1785–1925). The photographs include a group of unprecedented, captivating images of life in the royal court in Tehran. These are complemented by photographs of historic monuments that capture the grand, eloquent beauty of such iconic ancient sites as Persepolis and Naqsh-e Rostam. The Eye of the Shah also looks at vintage photographic albums, memorabilia that used formal portraits of the shah, and works by two modern Iranian photographers, Bahman Jalali (1944–2010) and Shadi Ghadirian (b. 1974). The catalogue's essays discuss such topics as the achievements of court photographers in the service of Naser al-Din Shah, including Reza ‘Akkasbashi, ‘Abdollah Mirza Qajar, and Dust Mohammad Khan Mo‘ayyer al-Mamalek, and the volume also examines the role of photography in helping Iranians document Iran's pre-Islamic monuments during the second half of the nineteenth century. Contributors include Carmen Pérez González, Judith A. Lerner, and Reza Sheikh.

Liminalities Of Gender And Sexuality In Nineteenth Century Iranian Photography

Nineteenth-century Iran was an ocularcentered society predicated on visuality and what was seen and unseen, and photographs became liminal sites of desire that maneuvered "betwixt and between" various social spaces—public, private, seen, unseen, accessible, and forbidden—thus mapping, graphing, and even transgressing those spaces, especially in light of increasing modernization and global contact during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Of primary interest is how photographs negotiated and coded gender, sexuality, and desire, becoming strategies of empowerment, of domination, of expression, and of being seen. Hence, the photograph became a vehicle to traverse multiple locations that various gendered physical bodies could not, and it was also the social and political relations that had preceded the photograph that determined those ideological spaces of (im)mobility. In identifying these notions in photographs, one may glean information about how modern Iran metamorphosed throughout its own long durée or resisted those societal transformations as a result of modernization.

When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals. This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of The Craft of Research. Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. A Manual for Writers also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project. Through eight decades and millions of copies, A Manual for Writers has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.

Alles beginnt mit einer Zeile aus einem persischen Gedicht ... Anna und Nouri, beide Studenten an der Universität in Chicago, verlieben sich trotz ihres sehr unterschiedlichen kulturellen Hintergrunds ineinander. Anna, die zu ihren Eltern kein besonders inniges Verhältnis hat, ist überglücklich, mit Nouri in sein Heimatland Iran ziehen zu können, wo sie von seiner wohlhabenden Familie mit offenen Armen empfangen wird. Doch was 1978 mit einer glücklichen Ehe beginnt, wird völlig auf den Kopf gestellt, als die Welt durch den Sturz des Schahs und das Entstehen der Islamischen Republik aus den Fugen gerät. Unter Ayatollah Khomeini und den Republikanischen Gardisten wird das alltägliche Leben immer schwieriger. Anna muss lernen, in einer veränderten Welt voller Beschränkungen, in der die ihr vertrauten, westlichen Verhaltensweisen nicht mehrt toleriert werden, zu bestehen. Willkürliche Verhaftungen und Folter sind an der Tagesordnung. Frauen werden gezwungen, einen Hidschab zu tragen. Und Anna muss erkennen, dass sie nicht mehr frei über ihre Ausreise bestimmen kann. Als sich die Situation dramatisch zuspitzt, merkt Anna, dass nichts mehr so ist, wie sie dachte, und dass sie niemandem mehr vertrauen kann ... nicht einmal ihrem Ehemann.
