Reza Aslan London talk and Book presentation in SOASposted on 26 May 2011 | post

We are thrilled to be part of the efforts to recognize, support and promote the value of Iranian & Middle Eastern culture through this new engagement with SOAS & the London Middle East Institute.

We are convinced that such cultural exchange is vital to promote peace and understanding for generations to come. We believe that through education, we can contribute to diminishing and someday eliminating discrimination and prejudice around the world.

In pursuit of our theme of seeking a Healthier and a more Peaceful environment, we are eager to explore possibilities for collaboration with communities and institutions that support a peaceful and professional dialog among people, and provide opportunities to bring the world together.

As our first such international collaboration, we are proud to bring you the inspiring speaker, writer and scholar, Dr. Reza Aslan.

Dr. Aslan’s recent book, “Tablet & Pen”, brings a collection of classic and modern examples of the best Middle Eastern writing to the English speaking world, many translated for the first time. The Los Angeles Times stated, This is the triumph of “Tablet & Pen” to connect us at the level of our humanity, no matter where we may be from.
