Research seminar on Iranian languages

Research seminar on Iranian languages has been held monthly since 2022. The focus of the seminar is on the linguistic description of Iranian or closely related languages. The presentations are divided into two tracks: well-known experts in Iranian and related languages, as well as linguistic theory, are invited as speakers on the main track. In the Work in Progress track, workshops are conducted to discuss ongoing research, including student projects. Recordings of some presentations are published on the YouTube channel. The working languages of the seminar are Russian and English.

The seminar is organised by Yury Makarov and Oleg Belyaev.
