Newly Open Access Journal: Anatoli: De l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Territoires, Politique, Sociétés

Anatoli: De l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Territoires, Politique, Sociétés
ISSN électronique 2498-0730
Couverture Anatoli N°6 - 2015
Anatoli est une publication annuelle consacrée à l’étude pluridisciplinaire de l’espace qui s’étend de l’Adriatique à la Caspienne. Elle s’intéresse aux cultures - grecque, latine, slave, turque, persane, géorgienne, arménienne, juive, etc. - qui l’ont habité et façonné. Les territoires de cet espace, aujourd’hui fragmenté, furent jadis unifiés, au moins partiellement, par les pouvoirs impériaux, dont le dernier fut l’empire ottoman. Ils en gardent bien des traits communs, souvent sous forme latente. L’importance de cet espace pour l’Union européenne est une évidence.
