in the 1920s and early 1930s.

Benjamin H. Loring is currently the Postdoctoral Fellow in Central
Asian Affairs at Georgetown University's Center for Eurasian, Russian,
and East European studies (CERES). He received his Ph.D. in
Comparative History from Brandeis University in August, 2008. Dr.
Loring's dissertation, "Building Socialism in Kyrgyzstan:
Nation-Making, Rural Development, and Social Change, 1921-1932,"
included extensive archival research in Russia and Kyrgyzstan, for
which he received fellowships from IREX, the Department of Education,
and the American Councils.

Since receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Loring has been teaching a course at
CERES, "The History and Politics of Central Asia," and revising and
expanding his dissertation for publication. His article, a study of
resistance to collectivization titled "Rural Dynamics and Peasant
Resistance in Southern Kyrgyzstan, 1929-1930," will be published in
early 2009 in Cahiers du Monde russe, the Russian history journal of
the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS).
