    Into Blue Skies—a Transdisciplinary Foresight and Co-Creation Method for Adding Robustness to Visioneering.Mahshid Sotoudeh & Niklas Gudowsky - 2017 - NanoEthics 11 (1):93-106.
    Expectations play a distinctive role in shaping emerging technologies and producing hype cycles when a technology is adopted or fails on the market. To harness expectations, facilitate and provoke forward-looking discussions, and identify policy alternatives, futures studies are required. Here, expert anticipation of possible or probable future developments becomes extremely arbitrary beyond short-term prediction, and the results of futures studies are often controversial, divergent, or even contradictory; thus they are contested. Nevertheless, such socio-technical imaginaries may prescribe a future that seems (...)

    Forward-Looking Activities: Incorporating Citizens' Visions.Niklas Gudowsky, Walter Peissl, Mahshid Sotoudeh & Ulrike Bechtold - 2012 - Poiesis and Praxis 9 (1-2):101-123.

In contrast to fortune tellers, today’s exercises do not predict, but try to show different paths that an open future could take. A key motivation to undertake forward-looking activities is broadening the information basis for decision-makers to help them actively shape the future in a desired way. Experts, laypeople, (...)

    Subject Analysis in Iran's Local Historiography 1722-1925.Moloud Sotoudeh, Morteza Nouraei & Aliakbar Kajbaf - 2013 - Asian Culture and History 5 (2):p104.
    Subjects can be assumed as phenomena possessing independent axes on which intellectual and material achievements are deployed into a network of interconnections that, centered on certain axes in specific place and time, may give rise to a series of subjects or may transform into turning points that inevitably lead to dimming or elimination of a range of issues and bring about significant changes and developments in another broad range of them. Phenomena such as local governments/states formation or collapse, industrial revolution, (...)

    Hamartia and Catharsis in Shakespeare’s King Lear and Bahram Beyzaie’s Death of Yazdgerd.Mahshid Mirmasoomi - 2016 - International Letters of Social and Humanistic Sciences 74:16-25.
    Publication date: 30 November 2016 Source: Author: Mahshid Mirmasoomi King Lear is one of the political tragedies of Shakespeare in which the playwright censures Lear's hamartia wrecking havoc not only upon people's lives but bringing devastation on his own kindred. Shakespeare castigates Lear's wrath, sense of superiority, and misjudgments which lead to catastrophic consequences. In Death of Yazdgerd, an anti-authoritarian play, Bahram Beyzayie, the well-known Persiaian tragedian, also depicts the hamartia of King Yazdgerd III whose pride and unjust treatment (...)
