In a world where the visual is becoming an integral part of knowledge, visuals can also express scholarly knowledge.
As such, for the 2019 conference, 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 their photos that reflect on the relationship between the researcher and the object of research and illuminate the different faces of fieldwork.
