Washington D.C. – Building upon the success of its two previous Conferences, Iranian Alliances Across Borders (IAAB) announced this week the opening of registration for its Third International Conference on the Iranian Diaspora to be held April 28-29, 2007 at New York University's Kimmel Center in New York, NY.
Through a combination of panels and workshops, the 2007 Conference will bring together academics, journalists, artists, activists, students, and community leaders from across the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Norway, Japan, and Iran to discuss issues pertinent to the international Iranian diaspora community.
The speakers will convene in New York to address issues such as media and cultural expression, transnational collaborations, the implications of self-perception and representation, Persian language learning, diasporic literature, and the changing needs and duties of the Iranian diaspora community in trying political climates.
IAAB is a non-partisan, non-profit volunteer organization with a young, dedicated staff spread across the United States, Europe and Iran. The mission of the organization is to address issues of the Iranian diaspora community while raising awareness of the Iranian community, promoting leadership, and connecting Iranians across borders.
