1915 document from the silk industry from the Iranian national archives.
BLC Milwaukee student Nader Sayadi spent summer 2015 in Iran and Caucasus uncovering primary sources related to his ongoing research on the silk-craft landscape of Kashan. A recipient of the Barakat Trust travel grant for the summer 2015, Nader conducted archival research at four national archives located at Tehran and made three research trips to the city of Kashan and the region of Gilan.

Nader took a break from research to backpack in northeastern Turkey, Georgia and Armenia for one month. Now returned to Milwaukee, he’s ready to get back to school!
