As such, for the 2019 conference, the Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) organized its first-ever photo contest under the title: “The Researcher and His/Her Fieldwork in Central Eurasia“. In the gallery below, scholars and journalists present photos that reflect on the relationship between the researcher and the object of research and illuminate the different faces of fieldwork.
