The International Society for Iranian Studies

"The International Society for Iranian Studies, formerly The Society for Iranian Studies, was founded in 1967 as an academic society to support and promote the field of Iranian Studies at the international level. ISIS is a private, not-for-profit, non-political organization of persons interested in Iranian Studies in the broadest sense. The Society is run by an elected council and executive council. The objectives of the Society are to promote high standards of scholarship in the field, to encourage the teaching of Iranian Studies at the graduate and under-graduate levels, to encourage and facilitate scholarly exchange amongst its international membership. The International Society for Iranian Studies publishes the journal, Iranian Studies that continues to serve as the principal journal in the field, as well as a Newsletter for the membership: ISISNews. The Society also convenes a Biennial Conference in Bethesda, Maryland in conjunction with The Association for the Study of Persianate Societies. The annual meeting of ISIS takes place in conjunction with the MESA meeting. All persons interested in scholarship in Iranian Studies are welcome to join the ISIS."
