Syllabus Description:

By the end of this course, you will demonstrate the ability to place the present-day Slavs,
their lands and peoples, on a geopolitical map and develop an understanding of the complexities of living in diverse Slavic societies. You will be able to speak about most important features (geography, politics, language, literature, culture) of each country under the domination of the present-day Slavs. You will be equipped to juxtapose views stemming both from within Slavdom, the present-day Slavs themselves, and from outside Slavdom, including institutions such as the United Nations and the European Union, thus encouraged to think critically on topics such as power, marginality, and sociocultural relevance, as well as effective communication across cultural differences.
