Alborz is Assistant Professor-Lecturer of Ethnic Studies and the Instructional Coordinator of the Diversity Scholars program, a cohort program for underrepresented and first-generation college students. Alborz’ research interests center social movements in postrevolutionary Iran and their affinities with movements in the region and across the world. His current book project The Iranian Post/Revolutionary Condition argues that Iran’s feminist and worker-led movements find creative ways to grow within a complex terrain that includes a fractured neoliberal project among elites inside the country, state repression, and U.S. imperialism and sanctions. His work also explores the experiences of Iranian and other Southwest Asian and North African diasporas in the United States pre- and post-9/11. He has published on these issues in Jadaliyya, Critical Ethnic Studies Journal, and Dissident Voice.
