Professor Milani, director of Iranian Studies at Stanford University, will give a lecture on the prospects for democracy in Iran. He will look first at the history of U.S.-Iran relations. Then he will examine two questions of Iran’s pursuit of democracy and America’s uneven approach to this pursuit. He will argue that Iran stands at the cusp of a cultural and political transformation, and it is only by grasping these changes that America can best formulate a policy. This event will be on Friday, Nov. 1, at 5 p.m. in Humanities 150.
