Discover Albania in Our Newest Online Learning Module

Europe Park at Skanderbeg Square in Tirana, Albania

The Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (CSEEES) at The Ohio State University partnered with a graduate student from the Department of History to create an online module to give  K-14  students a basic overview of Albania and its history and culture, which are often overlooked in high school curricula. Components focus on history, contemporary Albania, Albanian culinary traditions, and the basics of the language.

The Discovering Albania module was created by Dr. Christopher Kinley who recently received his PhD from the Department of History at The Ohio State University. He specializes in the modern history of Southeast Europe with a particular focus on Albania and Greece.

These modules are part of a series of eleven modules that CSEEES has funded to date through a U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant to CSEEES. Each module is meant to be a self-contained unit of instruction that K-14 students, K-14 teachers, undergraduate students, or other instructors can use either to educate themselves or to integrate into a unit that they are teaching. Stayed tuned for information on other modules that will be coming later this summer!
