Joint Ventures with TIAC
The NIHCR is planning a joint venture in the research of Asian Civilizations with Taxila Institute of Asian Civilization
(TIAC), Quaid-i-Azam University. This project would be the primary concern of the TIAC and the NIHCR. The
proposed project would lead to a joint publication in three languages at least (Chinese, Turkish and English)
highlighting the role of the races inhabiting this region particularly during the 13th and 14th centuries AD.
1)
A possible title of the publication would be Mongol Period and Buddhism: Mountains Desserts and
Massifs.
2)
A conference in which scholars from South Asia, Central Asia and the Far East would be invited along with
some Western scholars who have specialization on the Mongol period or those who have dealt with this
region during these centuries.
3)
A Safari in which the scholars attending this conference may start from one end of the area influenced by
the Mongols and traced their path in at least one of the three directions of Mongol expansion during the
13th century.
