The Journal covers the vast regions flanking the ancient Silk Roads
from the Iranian world to western China, and from the Russian steppes
to north-western India, which today include Iran, Afghanistan, India,
Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan,
Mongolia, Pakistan, and areas within the People's Republic of China,
namely, Gansu province, Inner Mongolia, and the Xinjiang-Uyghur and
Tibet Autonomous Regions. The Circle of Inner Asian Art, established
in 1995 at the School of Oriental and African Studies of the
University of London, has organised lecture series and international
conferences. The Circle has been especially interested in
disseminating research on the cultural interchange between regions.
The journal's main focus is on the pre-Islamic and early Islamic art
and archaeology of Inner Asia. Related articles by leading scholars on
language, religion and history are also published. Vol. 1 (2006) was
dedicated to Professor ADH Bivar on the occasion of his 80th birthday,
and focused mainly on western Central Asia. Vol. 2 celebrates the 70th
birthday of Professor Roderick Whitfield and looks mostly to the east,
but articles on western Central Asian topics are also included, as the
editors aim to publish research on different regions within every volume.
