THE 4TH BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE PERSIAN GULF (ICPG): HISTORY, CIVILIZATION AND CULTURE

UNIVERSITY OF TEHRAN, TEHRAN, IRAN

October 1- 2, 2016

 

The 4th ICPG

The Persian Gulf and its coastal regions have played a crucial role in the cultural and civilizational developments of the region and the world. The bright civilizations of Mesopotamia, Persia and Islam were formed in the adjacent regions of this waterway, offering major civilizational and cultural achievements to the world in each of their overlapping epochs. The specific location of the Persian Gulf made it a primary center for economic and social interactions between various regions stretching from East Africa to the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. The region has always had a special place in the rivalry between the great regional and international powers. The continuous presence of the colonial powers in the Persian Gulf is one of the outstanding signs of its importance in international relations. The discovery of oil in the coastal regions and continental shelves of the Persian Gulf turned the region into a major center of oil production in the Middle East, adding to its economic-political importance.

Although this region has always played a significant role in the cultural-political relations in the world, the history of political developments and the nature of interaction between cultures, as well as the degree of their impacts, have not been studied properly. Therefore, the Department of History of the University of Tehran, after establishing a MA course on the Persian Gulf Studies, has tried to prepare the grounds for giving depth to the historical research in the field of the Persian Gulf. In support of this objective, the Academic Council of the Department has approved a plan to hold biennial conferences on the Persian Gulf historical Studies.
