The volume Turks and Iranians: Interactions in Language and History. The Gunnar Jarring Memorial Program at The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study contains contributions written by an international group of eminent scholars who summoned in 2001 in Uppsala, Sweden, to engage in discussing old and modern Turkic and Iranian languages and their historical and cultural relations. The topics dealt with include how contacts of spoken and written languages from pre-Islamic times until various periods of the Islamic era, have influenced the emergence and development of Iranian and Turkic varieties. The studies contribute to a better understanding of the interrelations between cultural-historical contacts and linguistic processes and directs attention to the necessity of cooperation between experts of Turkic and Iranian studies. The international editorial group represents prominent scholarly traditions in Turkic and Iranian studies.
