Morgan Liu

Mershon affiliate Morgan Liu, associate professor in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, has won this year's Central Eurasian Studies Society Book of the Year Award for his research monograph, Under Solomon’s Throne: Uzbek Visions of Renewal in Osh (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2012).

Liu received the award at the society’s annual conference, held Oct. 24-26 at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies. The awards committee considers publications in history and humanities one year and social sciences the next, so Liu's competition included an impressive list of publications from both 2012 and 2013.
