Closing Roundtable

Date / Time: Sunday, 3 September, 11:30 ­– 1:00 p.m. 

Venue: Central European University, Auditorium A

With this closing session, the proceedings and key discussions of the congress shall be summarized, identifying major findings, new currents and challenges for further research. As this is – given the ca. 600 contributions –  a difficult task for one person, we have invited outstanding representatives of their field to present their perspective on the congress and to open up discussion for the plenary.

Chair: Zaur Gasimov (Orient Institut Istanbul / Max Weber Foundation Bonn )



Artemy Kalinovsky (University of Amsterdam)

Adrian Brisku (Ilia State University Tbilisi / Charles University Prague)
