We were very glad to see one of our Caucasus Studies II students at the recent Third Annual RUCARR conference.
Joseph Schloesser came all the way from Arizona:
It was an honor to be invited to participate in this third RUCARR conference. To be alongside with passionate academics and to hear them share their knowledge was quite humbling and truly inspiring. Being able to hear from the several speakers expound upon the various issues concerning the Caucasus region allowed me to gain new perspectives on the issue that affect the region today. Having among those present and among the key speakers, representatives of the Caucasus region helped create an engaging atmosphere with a palpable dialogue.
