Expanding the Ancient World Workshop

Reckoning with Ancient Fragments: The Transcultural World of the Sogdians

Organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

This workshop will take place online. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. Zoom information will be provided via confirmation email to registered participants. Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. The medieval civilization of the Sogdians, from their homeland in modern-day Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, was once renowned as an international agent of transcultural exchange across the Eurasian ‘Silk Road’. However, the source material from the Sogdians that survives is highly fragmentary and the limited textual evidence is usually written from outsiders’ perspectives.
