A tenet of the Central Eurasian Studies Society’s mission is to facilitate communication and interaction among scholars of the Central Eurasia region, and in doing so to promote high standards of scholarship and instruction about the Central Eurasia region. To this end, CESS hosts an open access online Member Directory to serve as a networking tool, allowing users to view members’ research interests and publications and to contact them via a secure messenger (email addresses are NOT shared by CESS). CESS members automatically appear in the Directory, but may opt-out if they choose. Those maintaining an entry are encouraged to update their information, and do so regularly.
Searching the Member Directory
The Directory is open access and can be used by anyone, even if you are not a CESS member. However, only CESS members are featured in the Directory. Search for colleagues by name, institution, country, or regional focus. Keywords or short phrases will produce more results than longer phrases or sentences. Please separate keywords with a comma. Results will be displayed as a list. For members who are logged in: Search criteria used during this session (while logged in) are stored on the right, to save time if you wish to return to certain searches. If there is a Save icon next to the search criteria, you can save these criteria for future logins.
