The Department of Asian Studies of the University of British Columbia and UBC Persian Literature Reading Club are delighted to invite all lovers of Persianate Culture to join our next dive into different manifestations of femininity in Persian literature. On June 19, 2021 at 10am (PST), we are hosting a scholarly talk titled, “Imaginative minds, Shackled Feet” by Belgheis Soleimani followed by an interview about her latest novel “Tokhm-e Shar”.
In this session, Belgheis Soleimani, the author of some of the most popular and award-winning Persian novels, will give you clues as to how to connect with her works and will explicate how she sees the role of women in Iran’s sociopolitical sphere.
