Project: Shifting frontiers, imagined geographies. A global mnemohistory of the North-East, sixth century BCE – second century CE

Engaging with globalization theories while adopting a long-term mnemohistorical approach, this project explores diachronic negotiations and transformations of the imagined geography of ‘the North-East’ – ranging from the Iranian highlands to the Eurasian steppes – from perspectives of the Persians, Greeks, Macedonians, and Romans, aiming to disentangle the ways in which the past and present interacted in light of increasing Eurasian connectivity. Combining novel theoretical insights with research on a broad range of ancient material and textual remains, the study hopes to contribute to a deeper understanding of the impact of global connectivities on structures of place and identity in antiquity.

Keywords: global history, globalization, geography, ethnography, Eurasia, Central Asia, Parthia, Scythia, identity
