Prof. Osipovich selected as a Summer Fellow at the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Institute
April 07, 2013
Tatiana Osipovich, Associate Professor of Russian, has been selected as a summer fellow at the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Institute, America’s Russian-Speaking Immigrants and Refugees: Twentieth Century Migration and Memory. In June 2013, she will join 24 other faculty from around the country at Columbia University to explore the many dimensions of the four waves of Russian immigration to the United States in the 20th century. Being selected as a summer fellow is an honor and great opportunity for Professor Osipovich. She anticipates that her participation at the institute will help her to prepare a syllabus for an undergraduate seminar tentatively titled “The U.S. Russian-speaking Diaspora: The Immigrant Experience,” which she wants to offer as part of the Ethnic Studies and Russian Studies curricula. On a personal note, she hopes that her time at the institute will be a chance to reflect upon and begin writing about her own immigrant experience.
