America Engages Russia, Circa 1880-ca. 1930:
Studies in Cultural Interaction
Sunday June 14 –Friday July 3, 2009
The Institute will bring together 25 university teaching faculty, curators, and senior bibliographers with nationally-recognized Session Leaders to consider, investigate, and reflect upon the implications of the various forms of cultural engagement between the United States and the Russian Empire/Soviet Union from the late 19th century to the beginning of the 1930s. Daily sessions, discussions, field trips, and independent project research will explore strategies for developing and implementing new teaching and educational paradigms.
During the Institute, participants will have the opportunity to work with many of North America’s greatest repositories of Americana and Slavic and East European materials, among them the NYPL and Columbia University Libraries. In addition, the Co-Directors will assist participants in gaining access to the myriad other museums and archives in the Greater New York Metropolitan area.
Admission is competitive, and all applications MUST be postmarked no later than March 2, 2009.
