Additional Details:

Employing an interdisciplinary approach, this course focuses on Romania's major contributions to world cultural heritage in literature, arts, and film, while providing social, political, and ideological background for the works and authors discussed. No knowledge of Romanian is required.

Initiated by two dedicated scholars, Otilia Baraboi and Ileana Marin, Romania Transformed is funded by the American Romanian Cultural Society, a nonprofit that promotes Romanian language and culture in the Pacific Northwest. The tuition fees from the Romanian in the High School program and part of the campaign for the Romanian Film Festival, alongside private donors, make this course possible.
