In order to learn more about the nature and extent of risks to fieldwork workers in the region, the Task Force on Fieldwork Safety is conducting a survey of researchers and interviews with leaders of relevant professional societies and others who have experience of or special interest in questions of fieldwork risk. If you have ever conducted research in Central Eurasia we would very much appreciate your response to our survey. Please click here to complete the brief questionnaire.
The 2015 Annual Meeting will be held October 15-18, 2015, at George Washington University!
Please save the date! We hope to see you all there!
Welcome to the Central Eurasian Studies Society!
Based in North America, CESS is an international organization for scholars concerned with the Central Eurasian region. The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) seeks to promote high standards of research and teaching, to foster communication among scholars of Central Asia through meetings and social networking, and to facilitate interaction among scholars at different stages in their career and in different places around the world. Created in 2000, the society presents various forums for the presentation of research including CESS’s annual conference and the biannual Regional Conference; awards annual prizes (including the graduate student paper award and the book award), and provides members with the opportunity to present research informally through the CESS Blog. CESS also offers members discounted prices for subscriptions to peer-reviewed publications, such as Central Asian Survey and Central Asian Affairs.
CESS is an institution created by its members. With rates based on annual income, CESS’s members receive a discounted subscription to the Central Asian Survey a significant discount on the registration fee for the CESS Annual Conference and the ability to participate in professional activities from committees to conference organization.
