Deadline: October 10, 2019
Our 20th Annual Conference, CESS 2019, will be held at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., from October 10-13, 2019.
One of the core functions of the Central Eurasian Studies Society is to organize conferences that bring together the Central Eurasian scholarly community. CESS has held an annual conference hosted by universities across North America since 2000. The Annual Conference regularly features up to 70 panels and attracts approximately 300 scholars from around the globe.
This year’s conference will be hosted by the Central Asia Program, at the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IERES), George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs. The Elliott School prepares nearly 3,000 students each year for meaningful careers in international affairs. The School’s faculty conducts research, produces scholarship and contributes to the public debate on global issues to advance understanding and to help foster solutions. The School is located just steps from some of the most influential U.S., international and nongovernmental organizations in the world. This singular position in the heart of the District of Columbia enriches the School teaching and research by giving students and faculty unparalleled opportunities to engage with the international leaders who walk through our doors on a regular basis.
