Institute of Oriental Studies 200th Anniversary Conference

The papers presented at this conference explore the sources that define our vision of the history, social structure, culture, and spirituality of Eastern nations and peoples since ancient times. Topics included the accurate reading, translation, and interpretation of literary sources; descriptions of artifacts and a rich variety of other objects of cultural and historical heritage; scholarship on the history of Russian Oriental Studies and Russia’s relations with the Eastern countries; research findings of archaeological and epigraphic expeditions organized by the Institute in collaboration with other academic organizations and universities.

In the current era of intensifying ethno-religious conflicts, rebirth of archaic spiritual movements, and new approaches of defining cultural and ethnic identity of certain peoples of the East, research of these issues is gaining ever more relevance and urgency. 

The conference will bring together more than 70 speakers from Russian and foreign academic and educational institutions. A significant number of the papers will be reworked as articles and published in a special issue of “The Proceedings of the Institute of Oriental Studies.”
