SAFEGUARDING THE CREATIVE VALUE OF INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN CENTRAL ASIA, FOCUSING ON ORAL TRADITIONS AND EPICS

ISBN: -; Era: -; Country: ; Key words: SAFEGUARDING THE CREATIVE VALUE OF INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN CENTRAL ASIA, FOCUSING ON ORAL TRADITIONS AND EPICS;

The Silk Road, which acted as a conduit between civilizations in the past, is once again coming under the spotlight within UNESCO as well as the international community as a practical means to resolve the clash of civilizations and to advance the rapprochement of cultures. Along with this development, anticipation for the role of Central Asian countries as a collective platform for intercultural communication is higher than ever. The nomadic culture of the Central Asian steppes was cosmopolitan as it accepted influences from Manichaeism, Islam, and Buddhism on top of indigenous shamanistic or animistic traditions. Such cultural wisdom and experience should be applied to great efficacy in the resolution of conflicts between civilizations in the world today. Since the adoption of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2003 and the subsequent establishment of ICHCAP in Korea, we have worked to construct a cooperative network with Central Asian nations to safeguard intangible cultural heritage in the region.

Archaeology and history Central Asia in the works of French scientists

ISBN: -; Era: -; Country: ; Key words: Archaeology and history Central Asia in the works of French scientists;

It is believed that the problems of absolute chronology are almost solved, at least for historical periods. It is assumed that written sources, such as inscriptions and coins, found in almost all the settlements of these epochs, provide sufficient information for correct Dating of archaeological layers. In fact, everything is much more complicated, because, most often, scientists are trying to get exact dates.As far as Central Asia is concerned, the texts are not very numerous and usually concise, the science of paleography is inaccurate, and coin finds are also infrequent. And more than that, coinsthey are very rarely associated with the exact location, and in this case they only give terminusantequem non, their attribution with any ruler remains the subject of controversy, and our absolute Dating fluctuates. Chronological definitions are mostly relative and based on the dates of previous or subsequent levels, which, in turn, they are not very accurately dated. Only some of them, in very rare cases when information comes from outside, for example, import or imitations of it are detected, allow us to determine the dates more reliably.

ISBN: -; Era: -; Country: ; Key words: BIOLOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGY AND ARCHAEOLOGY: TOWARDS SYNTHESIS SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINE;

This volume, entitled "Biological anthropology and archaeology: towards a synthesis of scientific disciplines" offers a French perspective on what in English is called«the bioarchaeology». This is a new direction at the intersection of biological anthropology and archaeology.Within the framework of the emerging school, the latest methods are developed, which often require complex laboratory tests. The conclusions obtained also require discussionadherents of these methods.In recent decades, biological anthropology has ceased to be what it used to beit was associated only with"craniometry". It has updated its concepts and issues, by shifting the focus of research from anthropological typology to a variety of materials, moving from the individual to the population of the past as a whole. More subtle methods the analysis is based on the application of the latest technological and scientific achievements, such aslike medical imaging and genetics. But the goal of biological anthropology remains the same the goal is to get closer to man, to understand his biological characteristics, his evolution, and his diversity in space and time
