A native of Tehran, Moazami joined Loyola's Department of History in 2007 after a life of political activism and academia. Raised in Iran, he has experienced the life of a revolutionary, living in exile in both France and the U.S.

The event will also feature Persian cuisine and culture, as well as traditional dancing performed by Loyola students. There will also be a DJ playing contemporary Persian music and a silent auction with items from around the world, including those donated by the local Iranian community in New Orleans.

Tickets are $30 for general admission, $20 for Loyola faculty and staff, and $15 for students. Tables of eight are available for $200. All proceeds benefit the International Student Scholarship Fund.

The banquet is part of “International Week,” a series of events promoting international education and exchange.

Dear Loyola Community,

Professor McCormack who was a vivacious contributor to Loyola's campus life for several decades passed away unexpectedly on Mardi Gras day 2012.

As a senior professor in the Department of English and a longtime director of Loyola University's FILM BUFFS PROGRAM she left a deep and cherished imprint on the lives of many students and she will be dearly missed.

After the first feature champagne, soft drinks and sandwiches will be served, courtesy of Loyola's WALKER PERCY CENTER, and then students, alumni and friends will be invited to share some of their memories and to recall Peggy's influence on them.

You are cordially invited to join us to celebrate Peggy and to enjoy her favorite movies together.
