Diane P. Koenker

I am greatly honored to be appointed Director of SSEES. My own work has been enriched by access to its wonderful library collections over the past fifteen years, and I wholeheartedly embrace the challenge of leading this eminent institution in its second century.  Since 1983, I have been a member of the History Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, including service as department chair, editor of Slavic Review, and president of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies.  I am excited to utilize this rich experience on behalf of SSEES, its staff, its students, and its alumni.
