We are hosting a workshop on Azerbaijani Identity in Iran as part of the K-12 Global Fellowship Program. We are pleased to be hosting Dr. Ramin Ahmadoghlu, a specialist on Iran and the the Azerbaijani comunity in Iran and other countries. This workshop is for teachers and will focus on classroom-ready content related to civil and human rights, as well as religious diversity. Introductory information about Islam (essentials), Sunni-Shi’a split, and also very brief introduction of other minorities in Iran (only half of Iran is made of ethnic Persians). Dr. Ahmadoghlu will also discuss the Cold War years when Soviets initiated a separatist movement in Iranian Azerbaijan (only recently released archival documents prove Soviet involvement with all details).
