2019 SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENT FOR AUCA FRESHMEN
An important part of your preparation for the Orientation program (and fall semester as well) is your summer reading assignment: all first-year students are expected to read and reflect on Book VII of Plato’s Republic, chapters from Meditations by Rene Descartes and the ancient play by Sophocles Antigone.
Two AUCA professors have recently presented the findings of groundbreaking research made in AUCA
Dr. James Plumtree, lead researcher in the Analyzing Kyrgyz Narratives (AKYN) Research Project, presented his findings at an international conference held at the European Humanities University in Vilnius, Lithuania. Dr. Anguelina Popova, the project coordinator, with a Willard McCarthy Digital Humanities fellowship at King’s College, London, delivered a public lecture on Manas epos and the work the AKYN research group is doing.
