Welcome to the "Tigris to Talas" blog, the new outreach format of the Institute of Iranian Studies. In our blog, we align the spotlight on all things Iranian and Persian and look at AfrEurAsian and global contexts from an Iranian(ate) vantage point. We share experiences from our research, showcase ongoing projects and collaborations, highlight events, publications and online content, explore new directions of research, reflect about the field, and take an occasional dip into the history of Iranian studies and historical interactions between the Austrian and Iranian spheres.
