New Research and Approaches to the Study of Migration in Russia

Sarah Calderone (Russian 2012), a 2016 ADF recipient, used funds allocated to her through ADF to participate in a research presentation at a roundtable at an academic conference and a student panel at her university. She presented her research at a roundtable titled “New Research and Approaches to the Study of Migration in Russia” at the annual convention of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies in Washington, D.C. in November 2016. Her presentation focused on research completed during her Fulbright grant period and a paper on the introduction of a comprehensive examination for migrants on Russian language, history, and law. “With the support of the Alumni Development Fund, not only did I meet my goal of speaking about my Fulbright research experience, which was made possible with the advanced Russian language skills acquired through my CLS program, but I was also able to connect with others working on these issues. Besides the professional and academic benefits that I gained through these opportunities, this research exchange was helpful for the community of scholars focusing on the Eurasian migration system, as well as other graduate students in my international affairs program.”
