An interdisciplinary conference focused on the institutions, languages, cultures and histories that connect (as well as divide) the various places and peoples of the South Caucasus. We welcome papers that present original research or discuss challenges or innovations in teaching on the South Caucasus (defined as Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia). We particularly encourage scholars, however, to present work that is transnational or otherwise crosses traditional boundaries of nation, language, and culture to explore the breaching or blurring of these lines, both in the past and the present.
