The Iranian Enigma: Nuclear Pariah or Global Energy Resource?

The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy’s Ambassador John Price and Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series, in partnership with Westminster College's Weldon J. Taylor Executive Lecture Series and American Express, presents a lecture by Roxane Farmanfarmaian, PhD, on “The Iranian Enigma: Nuclear Pariah or Global Energy Resource?” on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, at 7 p.m. in the Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory at Westminster College. Iran’s vast oil and gas wealth, and unpredictable government, make it a wily and increasingly powerful force in a highly unsettled region. Can Iran trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East or affect the global balance of power through its energy-based friendships with China and its neighbors, Iraq and Afghanistan? Initially as a journalist, and then as an academic, Roxane Farmanfarmaian has watched and commented on Iran since the days of the revolution in 1979. She argues that the most important influence on how Iran directs its growing powers is still the United States. Born in Salt Lake City, Farmanfarmaian grew up in Iran and the Netherlands. She is the author of Blood and Oil: Memoirs of a Persian Prince, which she wrote with her father. She earned a BA in Middle East Studies at Princeton University and a PhD in International Studies at Cambridge University.
