Staging a revolution : the art of persuasion in the Islamic Republic of Iran by Peter J Chelkowski( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Staging a Revolution is a visual survey of the public myths and collective symbols used in the making of the Islamic Revolution of Iran (1978-79), and the subsequent war with Iraq (1980-88). Accompanied by historical essays, this is the first book ever to examine this material." "Staging a Revolution traces a period of history in which the power of words and images successfully challenged the military might of an established state, setting forth an avalanche of public sentiment that led to revolution. In these pages, the visual and iconographic history of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, little known to the West, is uncovered, from the fiery words of the charismatic leader Ayatollah Khomeini to graffiti, slogans, murals, posters, and banners - words and images that unified much of the nation. The book surveys the wealth of primary sources produced by the various active organs of the Islamic Revolution. Authors, Peter Chelkowski and Hamid Dabashi examine the popular beliefs and rituals disseminated on such objects as stamps, textbooks, banknotes, and even chewing-gum wrappers, objects that deeply influenced the national psyche, stirring people into a revolutionary trance through all aspects of daily life. These primary sources are read with a sensitivity to Iranian history and the Shii Muslim religion, making Staging a Revolution the first book to examine this political event through the very images that set it in motion."--Jacket

Eternal performance : Taʻziyeh and other Shiite rituals( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the centuries, observances of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar, have traveled far from their origins at Karbala--a windswept desert plain that is now a town in present-day Iraq--where, according to tradition, Hussein, the beloved grandson of Prophet Muhammad, was brutally put to death together with seventy-two of his male companions on the tenth day of the month. For this reason, Muharram is synonymous with both the first month and the tenth day. Hussein's passion and death are considered the ultimate example of sacrifice for Shia Muslims and scores of rituals devoted to Muharram have developed during the last thirteen centuries, especially in Iran where Twelver Shi'ism became the state religion in the sixteenth century. As Peter Chelkowski describes in Eternal Performance, many of these rituals were exported to other lands over time. They crossed boundaries and cultures from Iran and Iraq to Lebanon, the Indian subcontinent, North America, and the Caribbean. Yet all Muharram rituals, no matter where or how they are performed, have their origins in Karbala. The transformation and transmission of these observances to their present-day forms around the world are the result of the intersection of multiple races, religions, and artistic traditions. Eternal Performance explores the social, political, cultural, artistic, and religious significance of Muharram rituals for millions of global observers"--Publisher description

Filmnameh or "mental cinema": A new literary genre in Persian literature by Pari Shirazi( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iranian filmmakers and screenwriters were subjected to severe censorship in the political, religious, and ideological oppression which followed the Revolution of 1979. Censorship guidelines emphatically safeguarded the principles and interests of the Islamic government, blocking the production of unapproved screenplays. However, the circulation of un-produced screenplays was, perhaps inadvertently, not considered a serious threat and remained unregulated. Like the "closet drama" of eighteenth and nineteenth century England, which reacted to censorship of stage, filmnameh became a medium for social and political protest by artists such as filmmaker Bahram Beyza'i and novelist Hushang Golshiri
