Eastern European Fairy Tales

Developed by Dr. Julie Durbin at the Community College of Beaver County (CCBC), this module shows how to introduce humanities content on Eastern Europe by incorporating fairy tales into literature courses.
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.
