Stanford Department of Art & Art History presents an artist talk with Talinn Grigor, Professor of Art History at University of California, Davis, titled "The Hyphenated Architect: Minoritarian Agencies in Iranian International Style" on Thursday, October 12 at 5:30 pm.

Grigor's research focuses on 18th- and 20th-century architectural and visual histories through postcolonial, race, feminist, and critical theories grounded in Iran, Armeno-Iran, and Parsi India. Her books include the winner of the Saidi-Sirjani Book Award, The Persian Revival: The Imperialism of the Copy in Iranian and Parsi Architecture (2021); Contemporary Iranian Art: From the Street to the Studio (2014); and Building Iran: Modernism, Architecture, and National Heritage under the Pahlavi Monarchs (2009). She has received fellowships from CASVA, the Getty, Cornell’s Humanities Center, Princeton’s Persian Center, MIT’s Aga Khan Program, SSRC, and Persian Heritage and Gulbenkian foundations.
