Mapping Ancient Cultural Encounters: Greeks in Iran ca. 550 BC – ca. AD 650: Aims, Prospects, and Case Studies Greco-Iranian cultural interactions within the territory of the modern state of Iran are attested since the Achaemenid period, although they considerably intensify during the Alexandrine and Seleucid eras.

Word Order Variation and Change in the Languages of Western Asia Western Asia is an area of linguistic diversity and longstanding contact between languages of different families (Indo-European, Semitic, Turkic, Caucasian).

The dominant explanation is realpolitik. In the zero-sum game of international relations, each state, out for its own interests, sought the aggressive expansion of its empire and the external security that would bring. Insofar as this is true, we need only one theory to explain the whole Roman-Parthian…

While touring companies from neighboring regions showcased new genres of arts on the Iranian stage, the dispersion of ethno-religious minorities in regions added to the Iranian scene new artistic skills in ballet, theatre, and music, as well as female performers who were previously absent in Iranian preforming…
