Dear AATSEEL Members,
I am pleased to present to you the December 2016 issue of the AATSEEL Newsletter. I would like to express my gratitude to the various individuals who make regular contributions to the Newsletter: Alina Israeli, Ferit Kılıçkaya, Kathleen Evans-Romaine, Colleen Lucey, and Chas Cassidy. It is a pleasure to work with these dedicated colleagues as we prepare original content and bring pertinent information to our members. I would also like to offer my special thanks to Zachary Kelly for his article on Russian culture in the Bay Area. I look forward to our annual conference in San Francisco, where I hope to engage in conversations with many of you about the Newsletter!
