Networking Calls

ARISC is organizing teleconferenced networking sessions for scholars of the South Caucasus from around the world. These networking sessions are an informal way for scholars in all stages of their careers to meet and connect with one another on topics of mutual interest and have a chance to discuss issues relevant to their research. Sessions are devoted to broad topics. Attendees begin the session by introducing themselves, the topics of their research interests, and what they hope to discuss with the group during the session. A moderator will lead each discussion.
