Two Upcoming Talks

This Wednesday I’ll be giving a talk at the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University with Noah Tucker, a fellow Central Asia analyst. Our talk is called “Digital Memory and a Massacre: Post-Soviet Uzbek Identity in the Age of Social Media”. We’ll be discussing our research on how Uzbek speakers use the internet to make sense of the violence that took place in Osh, Kyrgyzstan nearly three years ago. More detail on the talk – and links to my and Noah’s past writings on Osh – here.

Then on June 19-21 I’ll be heading to Toronto for the Worldviews Conference, an exciting event which brings together experts in media, higher education, and international politics. I’ll be speaking on a panel called “National security, social media and the publicity of academic findings” and possibly participating in other sessions as well. I encourage readers in Toronto to come by!

  1. I’m sorry you won’t be closer! If you ever come to SoCal, I’d love to attend.
