Slavic Languages & Literatures
The University of Kansas is the only university in the Great Plains to offer the Ph.D., as well as the B.A. and M.A. degrees, in Slavic Languages and Literatures. The department has a full array of language, literature, and linguistics courses for students interested in the study of Russian, Polish, and Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, and occasionally offers courses and independent study in Slovene, Czech, and other Slavic languages and literatures. In addition, the Department offers Turkish, Ukrainian, and Yiddish language instruction. While working in a department that offers an uncommonly supportive and congenial atmosphere, students are given considerable latitude to plan programs of study that fit their individual needs.
The department by itself and in conjunction with the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES) offers an array of Slavic-related events throughout the year, including visiting distinguished lecturers, exhibits, and musical and theatrical performances. The area studies program, one of only 12 such federally funded national resource centers, provides a wide range of Slavic courses offered by more than 50 faculty members in 16 departments.
The University of Kansas seeks to fill an open-rank, tenured/tenure-track position in the field of 20th/21st century Russian literature, culture and/or film in the Department of SlavicLanguages and Literatures expected to begin as early as August 18, 2013. Details here.
