The Graduate Student Brown Bag Talk Series is a new discussion series organized and hosted by the IAUNRC that premiered this fall. In these series of brown bag talks, graduate students that study the region from a variety of disciplines discuss their research, the projects they are working on, and their field experiences. The series is designed to give an opportunity for graduate students to share their work with their peers in an informal setting, though all are welcome.
Here at the IAUNRC, we are very pleased to share the news that our own graduate assistant, Margaret Sullivan, a master’s student in the joint-degree program at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) and the Department of Central Eurasian Studies (CEUS), has been awarded an Alfa Fellowship to develop her career in social welfare and policy issues in Russia.
Malik Hodjaev, Soper Lecturer in Uzbek in the Department of Central Eurasian Studies (CEUS), has been awarded the Trustees Teaching Award in the Non-Tenure Track Faculty Group.
These awards were established to recognize and enhance excellent teaching at Indiana University, especially at the undergraduate level. This award is extremely competitive and marks the first time that it has been awarded to a CEUS lecturer.
From 2009 to the present, the IAUNRC has reached over 4,000 students and 319 teachers in more than 150 schools in 29 states across the U.S. and in Alberta, Canada through its rich, interactive video programming on topics related to Central Eurasia. This year the IAUNRC is pleased to further enrich its offerings by adding three new programs.
The Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center employs three Graduate Assistants (GA) to assist in the Center's outreach activities and publicity efforts. The IAUNRC will be accepting applications through March 1, 2013. Click for more details.
The award was presented by Ambassador of Estonia to the United States, Marina Kaljurand, in honor of Dr. Raun's contributions to the Estonian state.
This course, offered by the Political Science Department, is an introduction to the fight for peace worldwide through the lens of political conflict and humanitarian intervention.
