Aims & Scope

The Eurasiatica. Quaderni di Studi su Balcani, Anatolia, Iran, Caucaso e Asia Centrale series was created to deal specifically with a vast, composite but interrelated area which, in addition to its traditional historical-cultural relevance, is taking on growing political and economic importance. The placement of this series within Edizioni Ca’ Foscari originates at the same time from a strong tradition of studies on the Balkans, Caucasus and Central Asia in our University, where the main languages of these regions are taught - Albanian, Bulgarian, Neo-Greek, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, Russian, Persian, Turkish and Armenian. The studies published in this series aim to provide a high-level scientific tool with a multidisciplinary character in various research fields (archeology, art, anthropology, ethnology and ethnomusicology, linguistics, philology, folklore, religion, history, geopolitics). In particular, starting from 2020, the series has expanded and enriched its field of investigation, dedicating a line of publication to the themes of art history and architecture concerning the Christian Near East and in particular the area of Subcaucasia, term with which means the territory of historical Armenia, and the regions of the southern Caucasus up to Anatolia, Iran and upper Mesopotamia. The initiative is the result of the collaboration between the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage (chair of Medieval Art History) and the Department of Asian and Mediterranean African Studies (chair of Armenian Language and Literature) as part of the Seminars of Armenian Art and the Christian East.
