The Center for Slavic and East European Studies is announcing a new program as part of its 2018-22 Title VI National Resource Center grant. CSEES has funds available to support the development and seeding of new interdisciplinary courses at Ohio State on topics that relate to national and international security (broadly defined) in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. In particular CSEES seeks to fund courses at the 4000- or 5000-level that can be taken by upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, including MA students in Slavic and East European studies. Possible topics could include climate change, food security, migration, or economic interdependence to name but a few. Courses do not need to be restricted to the social sciences and can be housed in any division within the College of Arts and Sciences, or another college or school within the university. To be eligible, the proposal must be for a course taught at Ohio State and must meet the area studies requirement of at least 25% of required course readings, lectures, other content, or assignments in the syllabus specifically focusing on Eastern Europe/Eurasia. The Call for Applications outlines the purpose of the funding and process for applying. Faculty can apply for funds to support the development of a course between September 2019 – August 2020. The deadline to submit applications is August 16.
For questions, please contact Eileen Kunkler, the assistant director of CSEES, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This funding is made possible through CSEES’ Comprehensive National Resource Center Title VI grant from the International and Foreign Language Education division of the U.S. Department of Education.
