This three-week Institute examines the evolution of America’s “academic” engagement with Eurasia from the 19th century down to the present. The historic personalities, institutions, organizations, and research resources that collectively constituted the foundation of Eurasian studies in America will be considered within the broad framework of the geopolitical relations of America and Eurasia over more than 150 years.
The Institute’s Principal Investigator Timothy Frye, and Co-Directors Edward Kasinec and Robert Davis hope also to suggest a more broadly applicable paradigm of area studies development in the United States (for Middle Eastern, East Asian, African, Latin American studies, etc.), suggesting avenues of comparative research.
