Fuentes Clásicas y Orientales sobre la Eurasia Central Preislámica

Project Details

Description

This is an interdisciplinary project between senior and junior specialists in the fields of Classical Philology and
Translation & Interpreting (Chinese). It includes three Professors of the Autonomous University of Barcelona,
as well as one Doctor and two PhD students linked to the same university. The members of the project are
specialised in different Cultural Traditions (Graeco-Latin, Iranian and Chinese), however each one of them is
currently investigating the links between these Cultural Traditions and Preislamic Central Eurasia.
Work will proceed along a main line of investigation, the preparation of a collective work, with the
collaboration of all the members of the project. This collective work has the provisional title of "Introduction to
the Sources on Preislamic Central Eurasia (8th c. B.C.-8th c. A.D.)".
This project aims to develop research in a region that has been neglected in Spain, but for which an important
tradition exists in neighbouring countries (Central Asian Studies, Études sur l'Asie Centrale, Zentralasienkunde),
and to serve as a platform and starting point for researchers interested in different aspects of the
archaeology, philology and history of the peoples and cultures of Preislamic Central Eurasia.
