Benefits of Membership

Membership in ARISC has several benefits. Members have the opportunity to shape ARISC activities and offerings in the South Caucasus, if they choose to serve on a variety of committees. Access to a discussion group gives members immediate news on the latest scholarly developments and opportunities in the region. An annual newsletter and member directory are invaluable resources for following ARISC’s work and networking with a wider community of scholars. ARISC also works to publicize members’ scholarly events that are pertinent to the South Caucasus, and offers modest funds for co-sponsoring events.

ARISC has worked with several local vendors to provide discounts to members. Members should contact ARISC Resident Directors for more information.
