HIST 490 / HON 300 Topics: Battleground of Empires

Dr. Adrian Mandzy

Graduate Credit Available

This course focuses mainly on the peoples, histories and cultures of Slavic Europe with special emphasis on the Soviet and German occupations. The class combines traditional class activities with excursions to relevant places of interest in Eastern Europe and the surrounding countryside. Students are asked to critically examine their encounters with Slavic society. Includes an opportunity to present a paper at an international student conference.

ENG 290 / GWS 470 Topics: Women Writers in Times of Terror

Dr. Beth Crachiolo

This course will explore Slavic literature in the context of the stories people tell each other to consider how is identity constructed, negotiated, and maintained. We will also look at a few texts from elsewhere in Europe to see what an “outsider’s” view might tell us. Students lead discussions, write short responses to the texts, and a final essay.

 

All KIIS course credit is awarded by Western Kentucky University.
