Eleanor Nurmi 
Receives Vestnik Jury Award
For Immediate Release

The School of Russian and Asian Studies congratulates Eleanor Nurmi as the recipient of the $200 Jury Prize from Vestnik, The Journal of Russian and Asian Studies for our 12th issue.

Vestnik encourages students to study any subject related to the countries of the former Soviet Union. Vestnik also encourages students to develop original ideas on their subject matter and to back those ideas with solid arguments and evidence drawn from original research.

In her work entitled “Historical Context and Modern Demands: Reinterpreting Linguistic Human Rights in Ukraine,” Ms. Nurmi explores linguistic human rights, an important field that has only recently come to the forefront of international human rights efforts. By carefully examining the experience of Ukraine, a country that has had a long and storied history with linguistic influences and regulations, and which continues to struggle with issues related to its own linguistic pluralism, Ms. Nurmi has created a work not only of immediate importance to understanding the pressing issues in Ukraine, but also of broader significance to emerging field of linguistic human rights.

The Vestnik Editorial Board applauds Elenor Nurmi, currently a student at the University of Chicago, for producing a conceptually strong, well-argued, and extraordinarily well-researched paper.

The board also thanks the other contributors of this 12th issue of Vestnik, including D. Garrison Golubock, Ruxi Zhang, Ingrid Korsgard, Michael Zeller for their exceptional research and their hard work in working with the board and each other to revise and improve their papers to create this issue of Vestnik, The Journal of Russian and Asian Studies.
