Wolfson College and the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics are pleased to host an Indo-Iranian Philology Day on Saturday, 28 April 2018, at Wolfson College. This day celebrates the long-standing tradition of teaching Indic and Iranian languages as well as Indo-Iranian Comparative Philology at the University, and will showcase the breadth of the field as well as the fascinating connections with other areas of study.

In the morning there will be a choice of introductory classes in Avestan language and in Vedic language and texts, as well as a brief survey of Indo-Iranian and Indo-European Comparative Philology and Old Persian Cuneiform. After a buffet lunch, four lectures on a number of religious, historical, and literary topics relating to the Indo-Iranian world will round off the day.

The Indo-Iranian Philology Day, sponsored by Wolfson's Lorne Thyssen Research Fund for Ancient World Topics and by the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics, is free and open to all. For catering purposes, please register here: http://bit.ly/IndoIranian
