International Conference “Silk Roads by Land and Sea”
March 9, 2022 - March 12, 2022
The Research Centre Indian Ocean – RIO, jointly with its partners, is organizing an International Conference on the “Silk Roads by Land and Sea”, at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech). The event is primarily planned as a face-to-face conference with additional digital participation on a Zoom platform.
The conference will be structured around five sections, namely Cultural Heritage, Natural Sciences, Humanities and History of Religions, Social Anthropology, and finally, Historic Politics and Economics. Dealing with these five sections, the presentations will take place in two parallel strings: “Silk Roads by Land” and “Silk Roads by Sea”. Through this comparative, multidisciplinary, and diachronic approach between these land and sea networks, this conference will attempt a further reading of the past to shed light on the present and visualize the future of the areas along with these networks.
