About Me


I am a Tehraner and I teach English at several Japanese universities. I hold a BA in English Language and Literature, an MA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), both from Alzahra University, Tehran, Iran, and a PhD in Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) from Osaka University, Japan. My passion for social justice has led me to engage in different English Language Teaching (ELT) movements for change and I am now a racial equity advocate and one of the leaders of Women of Color in ELT, a decolonial, intersectional feminist, anti-racist, anti-elitist, anti-precarity, and anti-frontera movement by Women of Color for Women of Color.

  1. Dear Dr Mehran, I’m the Managing Editor for the EL Gazette (www.elgazette.com), an industry news and features magazine. Would you like to write a short piece for our magazine? We regularly run a column called “Out of the Box” where we provide a platform for opinion or perspective pieces. I like all of your blog posts, so the choice could be yours. Hope to hear back from you! Cheers. Ron
