Fall 2012/Spring 2013

To engage directly with the challenges brought by the global scope of Medieval Studies, IU’s Medieval Studies Institute brought together scholars whose work spanned the Eurasian continent to discuss their common challenges as well as their common grounds for cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Panelists included Asma Afsaruddin (Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures), Christopher Atwood (Department of Central Eurasian Studies), Christopher Beckwith (Department of Central Eurasian Studies), Manling Luo (Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures), and John Walbridge (Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures). The panel was moderated by Rosemary McGerr, Director of the Medieval Studies Institute and Professor in the Department of Comparative Literature.

On January 16th, 2013, Indiana University was paid a special visit by the Ambassador of Estonia to the United States, Marina Kaljurand. This visit was sponsored by the Department of Central Eurasian Studies, the West European Studies Center, the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center, the Russian and East European Institute, and the Embassy of the Republic of Estonia.

The Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center commemorated its 50th anniversary with a lecture by Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Robert Blake.  In his lecture, Assistant Secretary Blake discussed the growing importance of Central Asia in American Foreign Policy.
