This module resulted from a series of joint workshops organized in 2014-2016 by CCBC in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and East European Studies. This partnership for curriculum and campus internationalization was supported with a grant through the "Bridging Cultures with Community Colleges" program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
