Main themes

Oriental studies are here primarily regarded as a discipline with its own historiography as well as with its peculiar epistemological and methodological approach. Next, they are considered in relation with the main areas of studies (linguistic, philological, literary) as they are investigated and specifically taught at the Oriental Institute.


By the end of the course, students will have acquired a detailed overview of the full range of Oriental studies, enabling them to decide what to specialize in later on in their bachelor program.

Content The course provides an introduction to the following fields: epistemology and methodology of Oriental studies; Indo-European comparativism; Semitic comparativism; Egyptology; Assyriology, Anatolian studies; Christian Oriental studies (Armenian, Georgian, Aramaean/Syriac, Coptic, Aethiopian, and Arabic); Byzantine studies; Slavistics; Arab-Muslim studies; Indology and Asian studies. Depending on the field concerned, emphasis is put on linguistics, philology or literature.
