University Events

MERCZbau revisits the intertwined histories of the Ukrainian city of Lviv and the Polish city of Wroclaw as seen through the prism of a particularly eastern Orientalism. The Berlin-based artist collective Slavs and Tatars have created a speculative range of merchandising dedicated to the defunct Department of Oriental Studies of what was once known as the Jan Kazimierz University of Lwow, acting as if age-old traditions of scholarship and inquiry about “the East” had survived the Polish population’s forcible westward journey after World War II. The exhibition will be open from May 5 - October 7, 2022.

Academic Opportunities

The Czech language programme – SUMMER FLAS PRAGUE is an intensive  language course arranged exclusively for US undergraduate and graduate students who are in receipt of a summer fellowship from the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship programme. The application deadline is June 30, 2022.

Each academic year CSEEES organizes an annual teacher training workshop to provide teachers with the knowledge and resources to bring effectively Eastern European and Eurasian content into the classroom. As Russia’s war in Ukraine continues, we recognize that both educators and students want to learn more about Ukraine and its relationship with Russia. This two-session workshop will focus on furthering participants’ understanding of Ukrainian culture and history. Registration deadline is Friday, July 1.
