CeLCAR Staff is sooooo happy that today is 2 weeks until the start of ConCALL-4 (April 9-11)! This bi-annual conference was originally scheduled for April 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic. This year is the first time we are offering the conference virtually, and we couldn't be more excited! While we love seeing everyone in person, the virtual option means even more people can attend from all over the globe without the added expense of traveling. If you haven't already, go register now! https://concall.indiana.edu/registration.html

Keynote speakers include William Fierman (Indiana University), Matthew Gordon, (University of California Santa Barbara), Ayşe Gürel (Bogazici University), Irene Vogel (University of Delaware), and Karen Baertsch (Southern Illinois University).

With special pedagogy workshops to be given by Julio C. Rodriguez (University of Hawai'i at Mānoa) and Betty Sibongile Dlamini (Indiana University).

Sunshine Girl: My Journey from the Soviet Orient to the Western World

Is one of your New Year's resolutions to read more?

Check out this new book, Sunshine Girl, written by Dildora Damisch. Dildora is an Uzbek woman born in Soviet Central Asia in the 1950s. In Sunshine Girl, Dildora provides a first-hand view of Tashkent and the small Uzbek villages during her formative years, the Earthquake of 1966, life in a closed Soviet city during the Perestroika era, the realities of living in East Germany, a real-life escape to West Germany, the work environment at Radio Free Liberty, an immigrant's perspective on America and, ultimately, the profound transformation of her hometown after the fall of the Soviet Union. Her bold, unique, and passionate voice carries the reader through her odyssey which stretches from Uzbekistan to Ukraine, Russia, East Germany, Hungary, West Germany, and ultimately, Michigan. Additionally, the memoir chronicles her great love affair with an East German and the overwhelming political and cultural obstacles the couple overcame to be together
