Serguei Oushakine, professor of anthropology and Slavic languages and literatures at Princeton University, was awarded The American Association of Teachers of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Languages’ (AATSEEL) annual prize for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession.

"[Oushakine] has devoted an extraordinarily large portion of his copious professional energy to making scholarly connections, building intellectual community, and launching collaborations across disciplinary, linguistic and national lines of demarcation," said Michael Wachtel, Princeton professor of Slavic languages and literatures, chair of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the university, and current president of AATSEEL, at its annual conference. "A veritable engine of our common intellectual life, we are fortunate to count [Oushakine] as a member of our profession and proud to recognize him with this award."
