The Pourdavoud Symposia concentrate on broader questions and domains of inquiry that are either well established, but in need of critical reassessment, or pioneering, and in want of further elaboration within the context of a symposium. The proceedings of the Pourdavoud Symposia will be published as edited volumes.

In May 2019, the Pourdavoud Center will organize, in conjunction with the Jordan Center for Persian Studies at the University of California, Irvine, the first of a series of international conferences exploring the Sasanian empire and the world of late antiquity. The term “Sasanian Workshops” emulates the successful “Achaemenid Workshops” that were responsible for the re-invigoration of Achaemenid studies.
