Zohra Beben, previously a visiting Asst. Professor in the Anthropology Dept, has been named to a one year appointment as a Mellon Faculty Fellow in the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Program here at the College. Professor Beben's area of focus is the post-Soviet republics of Central Asia. Zorah has been popular with students and faculty alike during her stint in the Department and her colleagues in Anthropology are glad to hear that she will not be leaving campus! Dr. Beben will begin her new position in August; until then she can still be found in her office in Washington Hall.
