Symposia Iranica inaugurated at the University of St Andrews with 99 speakers in 2013 as the first early career scholar-focused in the field. We bring together this group to celebrate, encourage and stimulate their interest and engagement with Iranian studies; our goal is to deliver a rounded, academically and professionally enriching experience that will have a real impact on the thinking, output and career objectives of our participants.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the British Institute of Persian Studies, Iran Heritage Foundation, the Shahnama Centre for Persian Studies, the University of Cambridge and I.B.Tauris Publishers.
