Kamran Djam Annual Lecture Series
In 2011 SOAS was awarded a gift of £2 million by the Fereydoun Djam Charitable Trust to promote Iranian studies. This generous endowment enables SOAS to build on its long and distinguished tradition of study into one of the world's oldest and richest cultures.
As part of this initiative, SOAS introduced new scholarships in Iranian studies as well as this annual lecture series to promote diverse aspects of Iranian studies. The annual lectures are hosted by the Centre for Iranian Studies at SOAS and are named after Fereydoun's son, Kamran Djam, who predeceased his parents in 1989.
