Congratulations to our 2016 Eurasian Studies graduate Yuan Gao, who has been accepted onto the Ph.D. programme in History at Georgetown University with a five-year renewable Fellowship. We are all very proud of her achievement!
Yuan’s Master’s thesis was on 19th-century Russian captivity narratives from the Kazakh steppe. At Georgetown she will be working under the supervision of Professor James Millward on a topic in Central Asian history. Yuan is spending this year as a visiting student at the European University in St Petersburg, and will take up her place at Georgetown this summer.
