Prof. Harris is an historical sociologist whose current research focuses on welfare politics in low- and middle-income countries and business-state relations in Iran, as well as class and social mobility in Iran before and after 1979. He visited the Mossavar-Rahmani Center in conjunction with an all-day workshop hosted by the Center to present findings from the recently conducted Iran Social Survey, on which he was lead researcher. While here, he delivered a public lecture on this topic to the campus community, and took part in a wider East Coast trip to discuss the survey outcomes and implications with sociologists, scholars of the Middle East and policymakers in Washington, DC and the tri-state area.
