This Week’s Online Events: Female Vocalists In Iran And Music And Protest

This Thursday, 12th of November, there are two online events that possibly can interest Shouts’ readers. The first event is a talk given by Nahid Siamdoust, as part of her fellowship at Harvard’s Women’s Studies in Religion Program. She will talk about “the ban on women’s solo vocals in Iran.”

“Her research project, “Women Singing: The Regulation of Solo Female Vocals in Iran’s Hypermediated Public Sphere,” investigates whether processes occurring in Iran’s hypermediated public sphere can drive the Islamic Republic to redefine its rulings.”

This event starts at 3:00 pm EST (8:00 pm GMT). This event is supposed to last 1 hour.
