This evening a vigil was held at Princeton University for Wang Xiyue. Wang is a husband, a father, a historian, and, for three years now, a captive in Evin Prison in Iran. In 2016, Wang traveled to Iran to conduct archival research on the administrative and cultural history of the Qajar dynasty. He was arrested that summer and the following year, was charged with and convicted of espionage. Wang's wife, Hua Qu, continues to work unceasingly on her husband's behalf as she raises their son alone in the United States. Wang is one of several citizens of the United States of America currently imprisoned in Iran.
