The Organization for the Advancement of Studies of Inner Eurasian Societies (OASIES) is a community of Columbia University graduate students from varied disciplines and area studies perspectives. Our goal is to foster dialogue and partnership across the academic spaces bounded by the East Asian, Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Russian area studies paradigms as we investigate Inner Eurasia.

Our events are free and open to the public.
