The goal of the annual Workshop on Central Asian Studies (established in 1996) was to offer an opportunity for scholars, institutions, and organizations interested in the Central Asian field to meet annually to discuss how we research, teach, and coordinate efforts in the Central Asian field. One result of this series of annual meetings was an effort during the fourth annual workshop in 1999 to establish a new scholarly society known as the Central Eurasian Studies Society. This new society held its first annual meeting in conjunction with the fifth annual workshop in 2000, and held its first elections soon after. Information on the CESS follows. THE CENTRAL EURASIAN STUDIES SOCIETY The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) is a private, non-political, non-profit, U.S.-based organization of scholars who are interested in the study of Central Eurasia, and its history, languages, cultures, and modern states and societies. We define the Central Eurasian region broadly to include Turkic, Mongolian, Iranian, Caucasian, Tibetan and other peoples. Geographically, Central Eurasia extends from of the Black Sea region, the Crimea, and the Caucasus in the west, through the Middle Volga region, Afghanistan, Central and Inner Asia, and on to and southeastern Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet in the east. The Central Eurasian Studies Society's purpose is to promote high standards of research and teaching, and to foster communication among scholars through meetings and publications. The Society works to facilitate interaction among senior, established scholars, junior scholars, graduate students, and unaffiliated scholars in North America and throughout the world. We hold an Annual Conference, and coordinate panels at various conferences relevant to Central Eurasian studies. The Society also works to promote the publication of peer-reviewed scholarship and other information essential to the building the field. As soon as practicable, we plan to begin publishing, twice annually, a bulletin that focuses on research reports, book reviews, information on the current state of the field worldwide, and related topics. We invite anyone who shares these interests to become a member and participate in our activities. To learn more about CESS: 1. Come to the Information Meeting on CESS at the ASN Convention. 2.
