Ievgeniia Sakal

June 25, 2015

Ievgeniia Sakal (MA CEU 2012, currently at Yale University for a PhD in History). My year as an MA student at Central European University was certainly unforgettable. Because my scholarly interests were at a crossroads of early-modern intellectual and Eastern European religious history, my case was approached individually.  I could take classes both from the History and Medieval Studies departments and I was also enrolled in the Religious Studies Program. Thus, I benefited from a whole range of subjects that corresponded perfectly with my scholarly interests.
