The Ninth Annual Central Eurasian Studies Society conference will be held in DC Georgetown University in September 18-21. The conference is located in main campus west Bunn Intercultural Center (ICC).

I am going to the Saturday morning HC-04 session but I cannot go to the Sunday morning SO-10 and a film about Choqan Valihanov. Please if anyone is free that day, these are all important papers.
