Past Events Highlights

In mid-April, the IAUNRC brought Karol Taylor to Indiana University to guide students through the federal job application process. With over 28 years of experience in the federal government and eleven in federal hiring, as well as specialized training in career counseling, Karol Taylor was ideal for explaining the ins and outs of searching for federal jobs as well as creating a competitive application.

For the 2015-2016 academic year I received two research grants. The first was a Fulbright U.S. Student Award for research in Kazan, Russia, and the second a Boren Fellowship that has me currently based out of Istanbul, Turkey. Each grant is for six months.

 

I was selected to be the OVPIA’s candidate for the Fall 2015 Semester at Boğaziçi University. As part of the exchange program, I was allowed to enroll in graduate level courses that would help to facilitate my own research on Ottoman urban and social history. I was particularly excited about taking classes with some of renowned faculty of Boğaziçi’s History Department. Moreover, as a urban historian concerned primarily with changes in the urban fabric of Istanbul, the OVPIA program enabled me to experience the city firsthand.

I applied for a Boren Fellowship in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan because of a persistent feeling that the work that I started there in 2012-3 as a Fulbright Scholar was left undone. When it comes to fieldwork and data collection, there are questions that you just can’t find the answers to in the library—even if it does give you free access to WorldCat and rare collections. My primary research question, which aims to measure the impact of energy insecurity on daily life, hasn’t been answered before.

The Association of Central Eurasian Students (ACES) held its annual conference on Saturday, March 12th at Indiana University. This year marked the 23rd anniversary of the conference and brought together over forty scholars across more than a dozen panels, with the Keynote Speech given by Dr. Manduhai Buyandelger. Through generous support from the IAUNRC and efforts by Dr. Nazif Shahrani the 23rd Annual ACES Conference was able to host a featured performance by world-renown dutar virtuoso, Sirrojiddin Juraev.
