Roxanne Varzi

Going back to the 1950s, 60s, and 70s to explore the work and life of one important French orientalist through the writing of his biography, Roxanne Varzi will explore how Shiite Islam came into play with postcolonial and postmodern theories to bring about the Islamic Revolution. Could this explain why, 30 years later, Islam continues to provide a framework for protest among those disillusioned by the Islamic Republic?
