Kennan Institute Announces This Year's Robert H. Baraz Memorial Research Intern

Jul 28, 2007

The 2007-08 program year marks the seventeenth year of the Kennan Institute's Robert H. Baraz Memorial Research Internship Program. This program was established in 1991 in honor of the late Robert H. Baraz, longtime Director of the Office of Research and Analysis for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe of the Bureau of Intelligence and Research of the U.S. Department of State. Each year, the Kennan Institute recognizes the research assistant who has provided the most outstanding level of service for the year.

The Kennan Institute has selected Katherine Pruess as the 2007-08 Robert H. Baraz Memorial Research Intern. Ms. Pruess received her B.A. from the University of Missouri in 2006. While at the Kennan Institute, Ms. Pruess has served as research assistant to Title VIII-Supported Research Scholar Douglas Rogers, whose research project at the Kennan Institute was titled "A Vernacular Ethics: Work, Prayer, and History in the Russian Urals." She has also served as research assistant to Title VIII-supported research scholar, Scott Kenworthy, whose research project at the Kennan Institute was titled "To Renounce the World: Reviving Monasticism in Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Russia."
