The Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ISEEES) at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), in collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Studies and Education (CASE) at the European Humanities University (EHU) and the Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC), is soliciting proposals from scholars in the social sciences and history from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to participate in a two-week workshop at UCB from October 28 to November 10, 2012.
A total of four scholars (“Carnegie Fellows”) will be brought to UCB for an intensive review of key literature, theoretical approaches, and methods employed in a particular field of scholarship (the “field theme”). Each Carnegie Fellow will work with a paired UCB faculty member and graduate student with knowledge of the Carnegie Fellow’s field theme to develop undergraduate and/or graduate syllabi and teaching materials, explore innovative teaching and research techniques and technologies, and prepare a field survey (with a literature review) for use by other Carnegie Fellows and scholars from the region. The language of the workshop will be English.
