America’s Russian-Speaking Immigrants and Refugees:
Twentieth Century Migration and Memory.
A National Endowment for the Humanities
Summer Institute for College & University Teachers
Columbia University in the City of New York
Sunday June 9-Saturday, June 29, 2013
One of the core issues addressed is whether we can create a sophisticated narrative synthesis of the “Russophone Experience” in America, that could be integrated into broader courses on American politics and immigration, sociology, anthropology, and ethnic studies. More than this, can this synthesis be applied to the experience of other immigrant groups?
Institute applicants—current faculty members at U.S. institutions, independent scholars, museum curators, and up to three advanced graduate students—will compete for the twenty-five available Summer Scholar spots.
Over a three-week period, they will engage upwards of fifty master teachers, scholars, and social services and community representatives.
