Early Modern Iran
From 1/2017 – 5/2017:

A specialist of early modern Iran, Rudi Matthee aims to study the ­historical formation of an Iranian sense of self. His book project will connect the Safavid period with the Qajar era across the “missing” eighteenth century, and probe the ways in which Iranians—both persophone elites and the subaltern who rarely speaks—since Safavid times have engaged with the world around them.
