About us

Team : Atoosa Kasirzadeh

Born and grow up in Tehran for 22 years. Went to Sweden and Switzerland for graduate studies, 2 years. Came to Canada, engineering, Phd! During my undergrad studies, my dream was to be a professor at an Iranian university (we had no female professor at our department, why? Same courses, same knowledge, good grades, teaching ability tested.) And then... We see and we change and when we change, again we see... So, Now, in Montreal, don't know for how long... From the time I arrived here (2009), amazing CafeLitt team and their activities attracted me and made me feel,at a point that, I want to collaborate with them as much as I can till I am here. My interests: Literature, film, whatever teamwork that has dynamic and amazing people involved!

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
