Caucasus Connections

Indiana University, Bloomington 

April 4-5, 2014

A Conference Sponsored by

The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) and The Sinor Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington

Deadline: September 30, 2013

The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus in cooperation with the Sinor Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington announces 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.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Bruce Grant (New York University)

Featured Speakers: Dr. Ed Lazzerini (Indiana University), Dr. Christina Maranci (Tufts University), Dr. Harsha Ram (University of California, Berkeley), and Dr. Kevin Tuite (University of Montreal)
