TWU's Sadri quoted in international and national broadcasts


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University sociology professor Dr. Mahmoud Sadri recently was quoted in international and national broadcasts by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) network and Voice of America.

In August, Dr. Sadri participated in a roundtable discussion on the legacy of Karl Marx on the BBC Persian Service television program Pargar (Compass). Held in the BBC’s London offices, the program will be broadcast later this month. This is the second time Dr. Sadri has appeared on the popular program, which is broadcast in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan.

He also appeared on another live BBC interview in August via Skype from his office at TWU, responding to questions concerning an open letter in “Financial Times” expressing concern about the potential removal of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK) from the U.S. Foreign Terrorist Organization list. Dr. Sadri signed the letter along with 36 other Iranian and American scholars.

Dr. Sadri also was interviewed this summer by the Voice of America (Radio Farda) on “The Constituent fractions of the Green Movement in Iran and the prospects of their future coalition.”
