University of Tehran, Iran

A Two-day International Conference at University of Tehran

A two-day international conference is being held at the UT Faculty of Literature and Humanities, on 17-18 December, 2018. The conference addresses the political and social developments of Iran in the early 19th-century.

The event, titled, “L’Iran en transition” looks at the Constitutional Revolution of Iran of 1905 and 1911.

A number of eminent Iranian and foreign scholars have attended this event and present their scholarly papers.

The Constitutional Revolution in Iran is generally considered as the period in which the Iranian state emerged into the modern age. Although the objectives of the revolution took time to be realized, its establishment of a Majlis (parliament) and a constitutional legal system had a profound influence on subsequent political developments of the period.
