Previous Meetings: 29th Meeting Tashkent, 1986

Dear Reader,

While the list of abstracts of Soviet contributions to this Meeting has been available for a while, there is now also a table of contents of Turkish contributions: those which appeared in Turkey, and a selection of those which were also translated into Russian and appeared in Sovyetskaya Türkologiya.

That meeting was a very special one, not only for the complex political environment of Western-Soviet relations of the time, but also for its sheer size: a total of 270 participants is reported. For the record, I decided to reproduce the keynote by Denis Sinor as well as the opening remarks on behalf of the delegation from Turkey by Zeynep Korkmaz.

Previous Meetings: Information about 29th Meeting, Tashkent

Dear Reader,

Thanks to T. Pang’s efforts to locate a copy of the collection of abstracts of the 29th Meeting of the PIAC in Tashkent, USSR, 1986, the table of contents of this collection is now available.

Neither Proceedings nor an official report of this meeting were ever formally published. However, one of the three participants from China, Chen Wei, wrote a brief introduction to this meeting which was published in a journal on Mongolian studies in 1987.
