Workshop: Neighboorhood, Rivalry, and Cooperation: Russian-Persian Entanglements in a Transottoman context since the 19th century
EEGA Affiliate Researcher Stefan Rohdewald and EEGA textbook author Zaur Gasimov cordially invite to the online workshop “Neighboorhood, Rivalry, and Cooperation: Russian-Persian Entanglements in a Transottoman context since the 19th century” on Friday, February 11.
Russia and Iran look back at centuries-long interaction in various fields of politics, economy, and culture, not least framed by the transregional relations of both Empires vis-à-vis the Ottoman Empire. The dynamic, altering border between Tsardom and Persia at the start of the 19th century had an impact on the development of the borderlands of the Caucasus, Iranian Azerbaijan and Central Asia through migration and transfer of goods and ideas. Both the neighboorhood, common sea and land border, the periods of overt geopolitical rivalry as well as cooperation were characteristical for the entangled history of Russian-Iranian relations. The workshop aims at elaboration of certain aspects of the Russian-Iranian entanglements neglected by international scholarship in a Transottoman setting and looks for comparable situational or structural transimperial constellations across the centuries, not excluding the Early Modern Period.
