Pizza with a Professor

The Pizza with a Professor program takes place twice a semester. A faculty member in the Government Department meets with students for lunch and conversation. Students come to learn more about a faculty member’s research, teaching philosophies, and journey to become a professor at Wesleyan University. Pizza with a Professor is a wonderful way to get to know faculty outside the classroom over pizza. Past "Pizza Professors" include Professors Cassidy, Rutland, Dancey, Matesan and Ramesh.

Pizza with Prof Hagel, Thursday, December 1, 12 - 1 PM, Usdan 112.

The Protests in Iran: What Next?

For the past 8 weeks there have been protests in Iranian cities on a scale not seen since the 1978 revolution. The unrest began after the death in police custody of 22 year-old Masha Amini, detained for not wearing a headscarf. Over 300 people have been killed as the regime struggles to suppress the unrest, which is particularly widespread in the Kurdish region. Unlike in previous waves of unrest, there have not been large counter-rallies by pro-government demonstrators. 

Pupak Mohebali is an Iranian multimedia journalist working for Iran International TV, a Persian-language news channel based in London She has a PhD in Politics and International Security from the University of York, examining the impact of Iranian elites’ conceptions of national identity on decisions affecting Iran's nuclear program and diplomatic efforts to limit the program.  Dr. Mohebali will be joining us by zoom.

Friday, December 2, 12:15-1:15 PM, Fries Center for Global Studies, Fisk Hall 201. Pizza will be served.

Sponsored by the College of Social Studies, the Fries Center for Global Studies, and the Government Department.
