Conference (04.-06.09.)

The civilizations of the Ancient Silk Road networks are rightfully famous for their cultural multiplicity. Modern scholarship has likewise profited normously from the collaboration of various disciplines concerned with this multidimensional heritage. The conference “Language and Culture in the Borderlands of the Eastern Silk Road” is organized by multiple research units in Vienna ranging from linguistics, philology, history to the digital humanities with the aim of advancing interdisciplinary research questions and methodologies. We therefore cordially invite papers from all disciplines concerned with the Ancient Eastern Silk Road region and especially encourage contributions with a transdisciplinary approach.

Early career researcher workshop (07.09.)

This workshop organized by the Young Academy of the Austrian Academy of Sciences is a networking event for early career researchers concerned with the languages and cultures in the borderlands of the Eastern Silk Road. There will be two sessions with lightning talks and a general discussion; one will be dedicated to “Digital Methods”, the other to “Cultural Heritage”.
