Established in 2012, Symposia Iranica inaugurated at the University of St Andrews with 99 speakers in 2013 as the first early career scholar-focused forum in the field. Our objectives are both to bring together students and early career scholars to celebrate, encourage and stimulate their interest and engagement with Iranian studies, and to deliver a rounded, academically and professionally enriching experience that will have a real impact on the thinking, output and career progression of our participants.
