Program

Friday, March 23, 2012, Leiden

15:15 
The launch of the Ivane Javakhishvili visiting chair in Georgian languages, culture and society at Leiden University

This chair will be opened as a result of cooperation between LEPL Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Georgia and Leiden University, The Netherlands. The main goal of the Visiting Chair is to enlarge knowledge and understanding of contemporary Georgian reality among students, academic stuff, as well as the Dutch government experts and the Dutch business community. The languages of Georgia present a particular interest for research because of recent investigations into the relationship between the languages of the Caucasus and the Indo-European language family. Georgia is also of a great importance for scholars dealing with Eastern Christianity as it has one of the world's most ancient Christian Churches. Moreover, Georgia plays a key role in the new political and economic relations of the Eurasian continent.
