Professor Setareh Ghoreishi - Professor Oakland University
Persia, today’s Iran, has one of the oldest, richest and most infl uential art histories in the world. Dating back to 550 BCE, about 2500 years ago, this country’s rich and distinctive cultural and social lineage has infl uenced literature, music, dance, architecture and so much more. Few countries enjoy as long of a cultural heritage as Iran, and despite political, religious and historic changes, Iranians maintain a deep connection to their traditions and festivals. Join Professor and artist Setareh Ghoreishi as she introduces you to Persian cultural history and current Iran. Presented through her own work, she explores the cross cultural relationship of language interactions and Persian visual elements.
