IHF America is proud to be a co-sponsor of the UCLA International Conference Cyrus the Great: Life and Lore, taking place on Oct 28-29, 2013.
On the occasion of the Cyrus Cylinder being exhibited in Los Angeles, Iranian Studies at UCLA -one of the largest and most comprehensive programs of its kind in Americas – is convening an international symposium “Cyrus the Great: Life and Lore” to discuss the historical figure of Cyrus the Great, his world, and later reception in antiquity and beyond. This gathering of prominent scholars from a wide variety of disciplines shall, as we hope, contribute not only to the important discussion on Cyrus’ new political order and religious policy, but also gauge his impact on posterity.
The conference is organized by UCLA Iranian Studies in collaboration with the Amuzegar Chair in Iranian Studies and the Musa Sabi Chair in Iranian Studies, and is sponsored by Farhang Foundation and IHF America, with additional support of Semnani Family Foundation.
