from The Board of the Eurasia Specialty Group of the AAG!

We welcome participation from anyone with research and study interests in the broad region of Central Eurasia and Eastern Europe. Over the years, the SG has sponsored Conference Sessions, Meet-the-Author, Panel Discussions, and Student Awards on diverse themes such as post-socialist urban geographies, critical geopolitics of climate change in the Arctic, cultural identities, demographic change, and popular opinion and protest in and across Eurasia.

Students are encouraged to submit their best papers and research proposals for our annual paper and dissertation enhancement awards. Please contact our SG past chair and current Awards Chair, Nat Trumbull, at nathaniel.trumbull@uconn.edu
