Statement on protests in Iran

Isabella Falsetti / The Ubyssey

To Our Students, Alumni, Colleagues, and Community,

The Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory expresses solidarity with the Iranians who are bravely demanding justice for the death of Mahsa Amini, and for all Iranian women and girls. We support their calls for basic human rights and dignity. We stand with and acknowledge the difficulties that our Iranian students and colleagues, and the broader community, are facing as they are having trouble communicating with their relatives and loved ones at this time. We continue to learn from and be inspired by the courageous fight for equality that is being waged under perilous circumstances, and hope that this struggle will lead to a better future for all Iranian people.

Please join fellow faculty and students B Hedayat, Sarv Iraji, Jaleh Mansoor, and Bahar Mohazabnia on Thursday, November 3, at 12:30p.m. for a panel discussion in solidarity with the ongoing anti-regime protests in Iran. Room 1002, Audain Art Centre, 6398 University Blvd.

Throughout the discussion, the panelists will highlight the importance and nuances of this women-led movement. This panel will be an open format to encourage discussion and questions from the participants. The panelists would like to amplify the voices of the brave protesters in Iran by sharing their stories and perspectives. All are welcome.
