A talk in Tehran

Research output: Other contributionOther outputsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

How should academics comport themselves when visiting a dictatorship? More specifically, what should they do and not do when presenting a paper at an academic conference hosted by a government that denies academic and other freedoms to its own population? These were the questions that accompanied me to Tehran in July 2010 as I prepared to deliver a speech on “The Paradoxes of Diversity.” Answers to them evolved out of the visit itself.
