Aims and objectives
We will be digitalizing a selection of rare Persian journals relating to the Performing Arts, printed in Iran from roughly 1920 though 1979. These are journals that are not held in any public or academic libraries inside or outside Iran. We have selected a list of journals that contain essential historical material on performance art and popular culture in Iran before 1979, viz: articles by musicians, composers, performers, interviews of artists, reviews and critiques of contemporary performances, and the state of the arts in general. These journals are printed on newsprint and are in a fragile and deteriorating state.
