Harris Article Appears in London Review of Books

The January 24, 2013, issue of the London Review of Books features an article, “A Fistful of Tomans,” by Kevan Harris, a postdoctoral research associate in NES. Harris discusses the impact of sanctions on the Iranian economy, the increased pressure on the Iranian currency, and warns US and EU policymakers against misinterpreting the effects of economic crisis on domestic politics in the Islamic Republic.

Harris also has had two other articles appear recently: “The Brokered Exuberance of the Middle Class: An Ethnographic Analysis of Iran’s 2009 Green Movement” in Mobilization: An International Journal, Vol. 17, No. 4 (2012): 435–55), and “A Martyrs’ Welfare State and Its Contradictions: Regime Resilience and Limits through the Lens of Social Policy in Iran” in Middle East Authoritarianisms: Governance, Contestation, and Regime Resilience in Syria and Iran, edited by Steven Heydemann and Reinoud Leenders (Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 2013, 61–80).
