U.S. and Iran relations

More from this show

Tensions have cooled down, for now, between the United States and Iran, that after an attack by Iran on two military bases in Iraq hosting U.S. soldiers. That attack was Iran’s retaliation for the U.S. killing of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani. The attacks are drawing the attention of all Americans, but probably are felt more deeply by Iranian-Americans. We’ll hear about that perspective and also from the perspective of an anthropologist from Pardis Mahdavi, the new director of Arizona State University’s School of Social Transformation.
