This collection of essays is the result of the International Symposium « Cultural Transfers in Central Asia : before, during and after the Silk Road », held in Samarkand on 12-14 September 2013.
Expanding the original Eurocentric orientation in a broad chronological and interdisciplinary perspective and involving new materials, the participants have attempted to test the methodological approach of the « cultural transfers » and the effectiveness of their basic concepts (ways of travel, guides, translators, innovation, assimilation of « new » assignments, semantic shifts, etc.) in the Central Asian context. In these studies Central Asia includes mainly the post-Soviet space and its Central Asian neighbors like Siberia, Xinjiang, Afghanistan, Iran and Azerbaijan. The purpose of the collection is to determine the significance of the theory of the « cultural transfers » and, if possible, the range of its applications.
