According to the website of Iranian Oral History, the International Oral History Department of the Office of Studies of the Cultural Front of Islamic Revolution will hold the first training course of the oral history of Afghanistan in remembrance of martyr Dr. Seyed Ali Shah Mousavi Gordizi, the sacred defense Afghan combatant. It is aimed at educating and supporting the researchers of this area.

regarding the plan, the department has said, “The narration of the common blood of Iranians and Afghans is not a new story; as in the not-so-long past, some outside the political borders of Iran including Afghanistan sacrificed their life to defend our land in order to prove that the Islamic Revolution is a global revolution and does not recognize geographies and borders. The participation of many Iranians in Afghanistan’s Islamic Jihad against the aggressors of the Soviet Union is another proof that showed this revolution is a global one from the very beginning and you can add to these the demonstrations held a few days after the victory of the revolution, the execution of hundreds of people on charges of following Imam Khomeini (God bless his soul), mourning for the passing away of the Imam and tens of other events which we need to recognize them.

For recognizing these commonalities and with the aim of educating and supporting the researchers of this area, the International Oral History Department of the Office of Studies of the Cultural Front of Islamic Revolution will hold the first training course of the oral history of Afghanistan. The course has been decorated in the name of martyr Dr. Seyed Ali Shah Mousavi. A martyr who is one of the main elements of the Jahan-Vatan (world-home) of the Islamic revolution and has been present across the front of this revolution from the front of Jihad of Afghanistan against the invasion of the Soviet Union to Iran’s sacred defense against the Iraqi Ba’ath army and the one who has tasted the tortures in the US Guantanamo prison and till his martyrdom by Daesh suicide elements who turned him into a symbol of the martyrs of Jahan-Vatan of the Islamic Revolution.”

The International Oral History Department of the Office of Studies of the Cultural Front of Islamic Revolution has added that the first training course of oral history of Afghanistan will be held this summer in two general and expert workshops. The general workshop will be held on the 3rd and 4th of Mordad 1398 (25th and 26th of July 2019) and the interested people with the subject of Afghanistan can take part in the workshop by filling the enrollment form in the address ganj.info/afghanistan.

Iranian Oral History website was also informed that the first training course of Oral History of Progress will be held in Tehran’s Hosseinieh Honar in remembrance of Dr. Kazemi Ashtiani and with the aim of more recognition in the research area of progress in the Islamic Republic as well as educating and supporting the researchers of this area.

Regarding the necessity of holding this training course, Masoud Maleki, the deputy head of the Office of Studies of the Cultural Front of Islamic Revolution said, “The privileged aspect of Iran’s Islamic revolution will be revealed in further years of the victory. Unlike many revolutions in the world, the Islamic revolution reproduces its people in new generations. The Islamic revolution has consolidated the idea of progress in accordance with its revolutionary aspirations and ideals in various expert fields. Thus, the recent three fourth of the life of the revolution surely deserves more serious attention to the historiography of the Islamic revolution. The historiography of the Islamic revolution remains incomplete without the registration and analysis of 1370s to 1390s. Culture, security, independence, progress, republicanism, lifestyle and ... all have been the areas, in which the revolution has a suitable and sometimes brilliant record in the past three decades and after the end of the war and Imam Khomeini’s demise. But a nationwide movement should be launched about the progress of the Islamic Republic. Astonishing scientific leaps in modern technologies in various fields of aerospace, biotechnology, Nano, nuclear energy, missiles and ... all deserve to be recorded and analyzed. Therefore, historiography and eloquence of progress can and should take this mission and be the narrator for conquering the revolution in the field of science and technology. "

He also reported that the first training course of oral history of progress will be held in remembrance of Dr. Saeed Kazemi Ashtiani  in two general and expert sections in summer 1398 attended by the senior managers, scientists and the experts and managers of the companies and organizations pioneer in the Islamic Republic. An introduction to definition and necessity of oral history of progress, path toward advanced art and literature in Iran and the world, an aerial image from progress in Iran, management of knowledge, pathology of opportunities and threats in the issue of progress and the world’s experience in cultural support for progress will be the preliminary topics of the course. The general workshop will be held since the 15th of Mordad 1398 (6th of August 2019) and the interested people in oral history of progress can enroll in this course by filling the enrollment form in the address ganj.info. After initial selection and interviews with the individuals, the selected people will be invited and the daily programs and the amount of the fee and professors of the course will be informed to them. The deadline for enrollment in the preliminary course will be till 30th Tir 1398 (21st of July 2019) and for more info, the interested people can contact with phone number 42795333.

On the one hand, it is seen that the basis is a mere interview and extraction and editing that is lacking in priorities. Therefore, in spite of the efforts of the producer, the end result does not attract readers and specialists. The other part relates to oral ...

The basic assumption in this concept is that the incident described in ...
