Film graduate's article on Iranian gender and sexual transformations published

Thursday, July 2, 2015

Najmeh Moradiyan Rizi’s article, “Iranian Women, Iranian Cinema: Negotiating with Ideology and Tradition,” was published by the peer-reviewed Journal of Religion and Film (University of Nebraska-Omaha), in April 2015.

In this article, Moradiyan provides an insight into the gender and sexual transformations of Iranian society from the 19th century to the present and examines the representations of these transformations in Iranian cinema.  In particular, she focuses on the gender and sexual changes of Iranian society after the Islamic Revolution of 1979, especially the recent decade, and explains how these changes are portrayed in Iranian post-revolutionary cinema.
