Understanding the Balkans
Spring Quarter in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia
Info Sessions in C-101 Padelford
Weds, November 1 at 2:30
Tues, November 7 at 2:30
Having sponsored three short Exploration Seminars in the Balkans, the CHID Program is happy to announce this quarter-long, full-time academic program, co-sponsored by the Department of English. During stays in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia, we will examine the issues of national conflict and conflict resolution in three successor states of the former Yugoslavia where the legacies of the conflict have remained current. We will move across these newly drawn borders to gain a comparative overview of the region. Often we will be negotiating both the disintegration created by the conflict and the emerging connections that link these areas together. It's an ambitious project, one in which we will often endure significant disorientation as we ask questions about the threads broken, frayed, and newly made within the new states and across them.
This program is open to students from all areas of study. Participants will remain enrolled at the UW during spring quarter, and may apply their Federal Financial Aid (if eligible) to program costs.
