    Description
    REDEFINING THE SELF

    The International Society of Iranian Studies is proud to present a powerful collection of films under the general theme of “Redefining the Self.” This theme is broadly construed so as to include a wide range of topics from the contestation of gendered or sexual roles, to the reimagining of violence and individual (often women’s) resistances to it. Subjects range from the seemingly frivolous, such as cosmetic surgery, to the deadly serious, such as murder. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of ISIS, we hope to honor the rich cultural history of Iranian cinema by looking forward to the exciting work that is being produced by the current and emerging generation of Iranian directors.

    Admission to film screenings is free for registered conference attendees and $10 per screening session for the general public (please see the screening schedule below).

    The conference registration fee for non-ISIS members is $70 ($40 for students & seniors). Registered individuals are entitled to attend all conference panels (July 31 to August 3), all film screenings, and the ISIS receptions.
