Conducting Research in Kyrgyzstan through the Boren Fellowship

I applied for a Boren Fellowship in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan because of a persistent feeling that the work that I started there in 2012-3 as a Fulbright Scholar was left undone. When it comes to fieldwork and data collection, there are questions that you just can’t find the answers to in the library—even if it does give you free access to WorldCat and rare collections. My primary research question, which aims to measure the impact of energy insecurity on daily life, hasn’t been answered before.

IAUNRC and Bennett College Collaboration

by Amita Vempati, IAUNRC Outreach Assistant

 

Last November, I, along with IAUNRC Assistant Director Katarzyna Rydel-Johnston and CEUS professor Dr. Paul Losensky, had the privilege of visiting Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina to be a part of their Global Studies Series. Bennett is one of two historically black colleges that enroll only women in America. As the IAUNRC began its collaborations with MSI’s (Minority-Serving Institutions), it seemed like a great place to kick-start faculty and, in this case, student visits.

The 2016 Navruz Celebration

This year the Bloomington community celebrated the Persian holiday of Navruz on Thursday, March 31st at Willkie Auditorium. Navruz falls on the vernal equinox and traditionally has been viewed as the coming of spring in Turkey, Central Asia, Iran, Afghanistan, Xinjiang, and many communities around the world.
