Academic Freedom and Human Rights Course

The talk will address the issue of gender and bodies in the violations against academic freedom in the country. Iranian college campuses are highly gated and walled through security guard forces.  Women's attire and make up can be entirely checked by the guardians at the campus's gate. Years of opposition and the recent "Women, Life, Freedom" movement made control over women student and professors softer.
