Daria Smirnova awarded summer dissertation grant from ASEEES!

We are thrilled to announce that CPLT PhD student Daria Smirnova has been awarded a summer dissertation grant from ASEEES, the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, which is the leading international organization dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about Central Asia, the Caucasus, Russia, and Eastern Europe in regional and global contexts. Daria’s dissertation, “What Memory Wants from Me: Contemporary Female Authors on the Calling to Remember,” was awarded funding in a particularly competitive field this year, as you can imagine given current events. We are so proud of her, and delighted she has gotten this crucial support.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
