On October 21, 2019 the Department of Central Eurasian Studies and the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center celebrated their fall reception. CEUS Chair Jamsheed Choksy and Toivo Raun, Director of the IAUNRC, welcomed students, staff, and faculty to the event. Dr. Choksy took the opportunity to officially introduce new faculty members, visiting scholars, and this year's Fullbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTAs). Three departmental prizes were awarded at the event: The György Ránki Prize for extraordinary commitment to Hungarian Studies was awarded to MA student Alina Williams; the Alo Raun Prize for excellence in Estonian and/or Finnish Studies was given to undergraduate student Quentin Swaryczewski; and the Denis Sinor Prize for the best paper submitted by any IU student in a CEUS class during the school year was awarded to MA student Cristina Palmer. Congratulations to the prize winners and a big thank you to April Younger, CEUS Administrative Assistant to the Chair, for her hard work in organizing the event.
