MEDIEVAL WORLDS provides a new forum for interdisciplinary and transcultural studies of the Middle Ages. Specifically it encourages and links comparative research between different regions and fields and promotes methodological innovation in transdisciplinary studies. Focusing on the Middle Ages (c. 400-1500 CE, but can be extended whenever thematically fruitful or appropriate), MEDIEVAL WORLDS takes a global approach to studying history in a comparative setting.
MEDIEVAL WORLDS is open to regular submissions on comparative topics, but also offers the possibility to propose or advertise subjects that lend themselves to comparison. With a view to connecting people working on related topics in different academic environments, we publish calls for matching articles and for contributions on particular issues.

Abstract:
With the rise of genetic studies of human history over the last two decades, criticism has arisen among the disciplines traditionally concerned with this subject, i.e. anthropology, archaeology and history. This criticism is concerned with the biological construct of historical communities – whether they be called tribes, (ethnic) groups, migrants or populations – that neglects decades of scholarly discourse on these matters by transferring these entities into primarily biological spheres. This essay is based on a systematic analysis of scientific articles reporting genetic research in the context of the history of what is now Turkey. Analysing the structure, methods and contents of this genetic research from the perspective of an archaeologist and historian, I discuss the issue of past and present identity according to both sampling criteria and the major research question, i.e. the Central Asian origin of the Turks.

Keywords:  genetics; history; identity; sampling; Anatolia; Central Asian origin
