In this capacity, Dr. Mousavi will conduct research for the Iranian Archaeology Research Gateway, a project designed to map the archaeological sites of Iran and disseminate critical excavation and publication reports in both Persian and English. Dr. Mousavi teaches Cities and Sites of Ancient Iran, 4000 B.C. to 1900 (Iranian 187); Archaeology of Iran (Iranian C163 and C259), and Iranian Civilizations (Iranian M110A, M110B, M110C) for the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures.
