Professor Grigor receives Saidi-Sirjani Book Award

Congratulations to Professor Talinn Grigor whose latest book The Persian Revival: The Imperialism of the Copy in Iranian and Parsi Architecture has received the Saidi-Sirjani Book Award from the Association of Iranian Studies and an Honorable Mention by the Sharmin and Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies at Princeton University.

The Persian Revival examines Europe’s discovery of ancient Iran, first in literature and then in art history. Tracing Western visual discourse about ancient Iran from 1699 on, Grigor parses the invention and use of a revivalist architectural style from the Afsharid and Zand successors to the Safavid throne and the rise of the Parsi industrialists as cosmopolitan subjects of British India.
