On Sunday, April 10, 2011, the Middle Eastern and Central Asian Program at Hofstra University will hold the Third Seminar on Iranian and Central Asian Numismatics in Memoriam Boris Kochnev (1940-2002).
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send us the title of your talk by February 10. We are planning to form the program by March 1. By March 15 we expect brief abstracts of papers for pre-publication. Themes of presentations can range from the Caucasus to Xinjiang, and from the earliest times to the late Middle Ages.
