Like elsewhere in the Middle East, Iran has been recently experiencing internal opposition to its regime. Since the Islamic Revolution, Sharia law has been imposed on its people. But Sharia law in Iran faces challenges from some surprising sources including a population far more secular than perceived abroad.
Professor Keith St. Clair has recently returned from Iran and he will share through photos his recent experiences and what he has learned about this fascinating country. The result is an image of Iran not often seen in the news media.
