Mateo Mohammad Farzaneh

Ph. D.

Academic Profile

I teach the history of the modern Middle East and history of Iran. My first book was about the Iranian constitutional revolution and the clerical leadership of Akhund Khursani. It won the Best First Book Award of the History Honor Society in 2016. My recent book, Iranian Women and Gender in the Iran-Iraq War (Syracuse UP, 2021) is a first in-depth look at how and why Iranian women participated in that conflict and how in that process they challenged their gender roles that were dictated by the newly established Islamic Republic.
