The region of civilisational interactions from Central Asia to Eastern Europe and from Southern Russia to Iran has been one of the focal geographical points in world history. The main cultural, political and civilisational players in this domain have been the Iranian and Turkic peoples, while the Caucasus and the Transcaucasian region with their cultural, ethnographical and linguistic uniqueness have served as a connecting link and an arena for wars and peaceful cohabitation. Though the main stress of the conference will be on cultures, histories (including archaeology, etc.), languages and the literatures of this vast area, presentations on modern political and regional issues, as well as the human ecology topics are also welcomed. The conference seeks to emphasise links between the Turkic world, the Caucasus, and Iran.
Working languages – English and Russian.
