The Central Eurasian Studies department at Indiana University is renowned worldwide for its assemblage of talented scholars and experts in the field.  This year, the department has added another top-notch scholar to its roster. Dr. Marianne Kamp, associate professor of Central Eurasian studies, brings with her over 25 years of research in the fields of women, gender, and social change in Central Asian states both before and after the collapse of the Soviet Union.  The IAUNRC spoke with her about her work in Uzbekistan, her research interests, and her planned course offerings.

When the IAUNRC invited me to write something about the SRIFIAS library for their newsletter, I realized that this place has become one of those things in my life that I can write and talk about for days if only I could decide where to start! I was a visiting graduate student at the Center for Research on Ancient Chinese History at Beijing University when I got admitted to the department of Central Eurasian Studies at IU. My advisor there, Professor Luo Xin, who at the time was packing his bags for a research trip to Bloomington, could not stop talking about the SRIFIAS library.

This academic year, the CEUS department welcomed Golshat Safiullina as a Fulbright Scholar to teach Tatar.  She moved here in October with her two daughters, who study at Binford and Rogers Elementary Schools.
