"The Crisis of Human Capital in Central Asia"
is the title of the Fourteenth Annual Nava'i Lecture, to be presented by
Dr. Laura Adams on November 19 at Georgetown University. Dr. Adams
received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1999
and has since published and lectured widely, in the U.S. and abroad, on
the cultures and societies of Central Asia, with particular reference to
Uzbekistan. She spent the month of June this year in Bishkek doing
research on the intellectual life of Kyrgyzstan, and is currently a
postdoctoral fellow at Georgetown's Center for Eurasian, Russian and
East European Studies (CERES).

The annual Nava'i Lecture is jointly sponsored by CERES and the Alfred
Friendly Foundation. It is designed to give recognition to outstanding
young scholars entering the field of Central Asian studies.

This year's lecture
program will convene at 5:30 pm, Wednesday, November 19

in the Riggs Library (Healy Hall) on the University's main campus in

Washington, DC. A
reception will follow the lecture.

Space is limited.
Please RSVP, acceptances only, to 202-687-6080 or
