Central Eurasia Research Group

CERG Research Group

Central Eurasia Research Group is a community of students and scholars interested in the past and present of Central Eurasia, broadly defined. The mission of CERG is to deepen our knowledge about the history, culture, peoples, and politics of the Soviet Union and its successor states, with particular interest in the regions which have been consistently defined as peripheral, namely Central Asia and the Caucasus. 


The group organizes workshop, lectures, film screenings and discussions.

Group leaders:

Charles Shaw Assistant Professor, Department of History

Faruh Kuziev PhD Candidate, Department of History
