Nick Turner is a Research Associate at the American Iranian Council. He is from Framingham, Massachusetts and is currently a senior at Boston University. There he is studying International Relations with a focus in Cultural Anthropology and the Middle East.
Nick's interest in Iran stems from his frustration that typical American conceptions of Iran grossly lack appreciation for the country’s rich cultural history. He hopes, through his work with the Council, to help promote awareness of Iran’s cultural wealth. As part of this effort, his initial work at AIC will focus on Persian art.
