The Department of Middle East Studies is pleased to welcome Professor Mikiya Koyagi for a Zoom lecture on October 6, 2021, from 3:30-4:50pm PST. The Zoom Meeting ID is 916 0812 3475 (No password is required). Completed in 1938, the Trans-Iranian Railway, Iran’s first national railway, connected Tehran to Iran’s two major bodies of water: the Caspian Sea in the north and the Persian Gulf in the south. In this talk, Mikiya Koyagi discusses the case of travelers to illustrate how the railway project reshaped local, national, and transnational experiences of space.
