Last spring URPE sponsored a panel called "Oil, Nukes, Mullahs,
Democracy and U.S. Hegemony: The Political Economy of Iran" at the 2006
Left Forum, and another panel of the same name at the Brecht Forum, both
in NYC. The 2006LF panel was videotaped, and both panels were
audiotaped. The audiotapes have been used to produce radio programs on
WBAI. The panels led to various articles in magazines and newspapers.
These panels also led to the creation of a web page on URPE's website:
The relationship between the US and Iran is still in crisis, and the web
page has received many new additions since it was first announced early
in the summer.
The page contains articles, books, radio shows, a video and
organizations, with links wherever possible. You can play or download
the radio shows and excerpts from panels, and you can order the video.
Speakers and writers featured on this page include Ervand Abrahamian,
Cyrus Bina, Faramarz Farbod, Reza Ghorashi, Ismael Hossein-zadeh, Leili
Kashani, Michael Klare, Fatemeh Moghadam, Kamran Nayeri, Tom O'Donnell,
Hamideh Sedghi and Behzad Yaghmaian. The is also a link to the RRPE page
on Sage's website -- you can look up references to articles on Iran that
have been published in the "Review of Radical Political Economics,"
URPE's journal, over the years.
All opinions expressed in the talks, articles and books on the web page
are those of the authors and do not represent positions of URPE as an
organization. There is also a great variety of opinion among the authors
listed on this page.
