Study Abroad: Studium Carpato-Ruthenorum International Summer School for Rusyn Language and Culture

Deadline: March 1, 2013

The Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center affiliate of the ASEEES and the Institute for Rusyn Language and Culture at Prešov University in Prešov, Slovakia, are pleased to announce the fourth annual three-week Studium Carpato-Ruthenorum International Summer School for Rusyn Language and Culture from June 9-30, 2013. The Studium offers a unique experience to Slavists interested in exploring the history, culture, and language of an East Slavic people located on the border between East and West Slavic linguistic and cultural worlds.

Intensive daily language study on the beginning and intermediate/advanced levels and lectures in history and Carpatho-Rusyn folklore, with parallel instruction offered in English and Rusyn, form the basic curriculum. Participants will also enjoy excursions to the famous Carpathian wooden churches, museums, and folk festivals, along with pysanky and folksong workshops, a visit to an authentic village wedding, and a day trip to Uzhhorod. This is a one-of-its-kind opportunity to study Rusyn, codified in Slovakia in 1995. Some scholarship funds will be available for students registered in a North American college or university. For further detailed information and an application, go to www.carpathorusynsociety.org. Contact Patricia Krafcik with any questions at krafcikp@evergreen.edu.
