Rollback: WID has sent an email to Prof. Minuchehr with suggested revisions, and looks forward to seeing a resubmission of this course.

Rollback: The WID and non-WID versions of a course should have the same course description. Please resubmit this request (and one for the non-WID course, if relevant) with a shared description. Also, I was wondering whether you'd like to give the course title a little more focus, e.g., "Post-Revolutionary Iranian Cinema"?
