At the dawn of the twentieth century, Iran was one of only eight non-Western states that had maintained their sovereignty in the Age of Imperialism. This continued independence was due to it being a buffer between the Russian and the British Empires. Iran’s sovereignty was constantly under threat, and for reform-minded Iranians the only way to keep colonialists at bay was to strengthen the state by giving it a constitution. This was achieved in 1906, but resulted in a civil war in the course of which Russia ended up occupying the northern parts of the country. Events in Iran were influenced by political developments in Europe and in the rest of Asia. In this presentation I will discuss Iran’s situation in the first decade of the twentieth century in the context of international politics.

Baskerville Conversations Series

Today, we have many “Baskervilles” who are the true representatives of America and Iran. Whether as former diplomats, current and retired academics, professionals, artists, filmmakers, athletes, students, or cultural ambassadors, Americans and Iranians have built a lasting foundation for people-to people exchanges and transmission of ideas and expertise for more than a century.

Baskerville Conversations Series recognizes the vital role of civil society exchanges between America & I ran. The mission of the series is to conduct monthly interviews on U.S.-I ran relations, and impact of friendship and societal interactions.
