Harriman Magazine: Spring 2017

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

The Spring 2017 issue of Harriman Magazine includes two special features by scholars who participated in our Harriman at 70 series: Sophie Pinkham, a 2012 MARS-REERS alumna currently pursuing her Ph.D. dissertation in Columbia’s Department of Slavic Languages, shares astute observations from post-Maidan Ukraine in her piece, “New Year in Kiev,” excerpted from the final section of her book, Black Square: Adventures in Post-Soviet Ukraine (W. W. Norton & Company, 2016); and former Harriman director Mark von Hagen, who is now director of the Melikan Center for Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies at Arizona State University, traces the arc of his studies from undergraduate days at Georgetown University, graduate studies at Indiana and Stanford universities, and his academic careers at Columbia and ASU. In doing so he at the same time charts the evolution in Soviet and area studies and what it means to be an academic historian. You can pick up a copy of the new issue in our office or download the PDF here.
