40th anniversary of the Institute of Ismaili Studies: Commemorative Lecture Connects the Past, Present and the Future23rd November 2017: November 2017 sees the 40th anniversary of the formal inauguration of The Institute of Ismaili Studies, London. To mark this important milestone, which falls during His Highness the Aga Khan’s Diamond Jubilee year, the Institute hosted a commemorative lecture at the Ismaili Centre, London, UK.

Four short talks explored themes integral to the Institute’s work: heritage, knowledge, people and the future. The talks were followed by a lively discussion with the audience on the role and relevance of an academic Institute devoted to Ismaili and Shi‘i studies in the modern world.

The speakers were introduced by IIS Governor, Dr Mohammed Keshavjee, who provided an overview of the IIS’ work over the past four decades. Dr Keshavjee gave a synopsis of the professional work and achievements of the four speakers, ending with an acknowledgement of the outstanding work of Dr Farhad Daftary which was met with an ovation of appreciation from the audience.
