UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 28, 2023
As of Thursday, September 28 we have reached our registration cap! You are still welcome to register for the workshop, but please understand that you will now be added to the waitlist. It is still likely that some participants may withdraw, so Alicia Baca will reach out to you by Friday, October 6 via email if a spot opens up for the workshop. Thank you for your understanding (and enthusiasm).
In this workshop participants will explore the world of “science fantasy” (known as science fiction in the West) literature and film from Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Within this popular genre, writers and filmmakers criticized economic, political, and social issues that citizens in these regions were facing in their everyday lives. Participants will increase their knowledge about the events and history that inspired these works, how they have been received domestically and internationally in the past and present, and how they have influenced the creative output of their Anglophone counterparts. This year's workshop will be led by Alexander Burry, Associate Professor of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures at The Ohio State University.
This workshop is free, virtual, and open to pre- and in-service K-12 educators and community college educators. This year's cohort size will be limited to 30 participants.
- A certificate for 3 contact hours
- $50 stipend for attending the workshop
- Free curriculum resources
- 3-4 books that focus on the workshop topic
- Opportunity to receive an additional $50 stipend for completing a lesson plan by July 1, 2024
