Request for Reference

Z8un's new post has a link to this blog which claims that Ali Afshari has fled Iran.

So far, I've seen no other news or blog pieces confirming and/or commenting on this.
If anyone reading this knows anything further about it can you please email me or leave me links here?

And while I'm putting out requests for information, here is something I've asked about elsewhere but didn't get much feedback on, so I'll ask again: if anyone knows of decent scholarship on the Cultural Revolution in Iran, please let me know. I'm specifically looking for something that addresses both the reconfiguration of the Universities and the articulation of a new model of national identity.

Thanks a lot and sorry for the boring blog.
