First-year Ph.D. student Adrien Mercat and fifth-year Ph.D. student Abigail Schoenfeld, both students of Associate Professor Michael Reynolds, have been selected to participate in the 2024 Monterey Summer Symposium on Russia, which will be held in Yerevan, Armenia, Tbilisi, Georgia, and Istanbul, Turkey. “Fellows [will] study with the leading intellects and practitioners in the field, including experts from the post-Soviet states. The Symposium takes the form of interactive lectures, skills-based workshops, roundtables, and debates.” “The Monterey Symposium will provide serious students of Russian history, culture, and politics a unique opportunity to get out of the classroom and off social media, and to engage colleagues and locals in real time on the major issues of the day.”
