4 The Persian Empire ( BCE) was the first world empire in history. At its height, it united a territory stretching from present-day India to Libya - and it would take 2,000 years before significantly larger empires emerged in early modern Eurasia. What explains its success? For the very first time, thousands of cuneiform texts will be brought together and incorporated in an online database. 4

5 Turkic nomadic rulers established large empires in the Middle East and Asia between the 11th and 14th centuries. Leiden University researchers will explore the link between their political ideology and the production of art and literature, via the cultural heritage of five cities along the Silk Road: Kashgar, Samarkand, Ghazna, Tabriz and Konya.

11 in-depth and relevant knowledge, and critical, multidisciplinary approach to problemsolving. Chantal Hamelinck Graduated in Turkish Studies (MA Middle Eastern Studies) "After my BA degree in English literature, I wanted to learn a language that was completely different in structure from English and Dutch. After my graduation from the MA Turkish Studies at Leiden University I first did an internship at a literary agent in Istanbul. A year later I started working as Foreign Rights Manager at one of the largest publishing groups in Turkey, for which I was in touch with publishers from all over the world." Explore a completely different language After three wonderful years, I decided to move back to The Netherlands, where I currently work as Account Support Coordinator for Elsevier in Amsterdam. Here I continue using my Turkish, as I work with customers from Turkey. I am very grateful that the MA Turkish Studies has taught and motivated me to explore a completely different language and culture, and what I learned greatly helped me in my work experience there, as well as back here in The Netherlands.
