The Department of Linguistics and Philology, Uppsala University, is pleased to invite you to the International Shahname Conference: The Second Millennium (October 15-16, 2011) with sixteen especially invited scholars.
The Shahname is the national epic of the Persian speaking world, an enormous poetic opus written by the Persian poet Ferdousi around 1000 AD. It tells the mythical and historical past of Iran from the creation of the world up until the Arab conquest in the seventh century.
The papers presented at the conference will be published in a conference volume after the closure of the conference.
