Join us as we welcome back recent OCREECAS Internship grant recipients to discuss their experiences overseas, Raavi Asdar ‘21 (Pheasant’s Tears Winery, Sighnaghi, Georgia), and Sam Merrick ‘22 (TYPA Printing and Paper Art Centre, Tartu, Estonia), along with Emi Kawamura, who recently completed an OCREECAS Winter Term project. Refreshments provided!

The Center for Russian, East European, and Central Asian Studies (OCREECAS) is designed to strengthen the study and teaching of Russian, East European, and Central Asian studies at Oberlin. Created in 1998 with support from the Clowes Fund, Inc. and other private contributions, its mission is twofold: to foster the development of new courses and cultural activities focusing on the region on campus and to support summer and postgraduate service internships abroad through OCREECAS grants.

Director Kristina Paabus and Internship Director Maia Solovieva provide the administrative support and resources essential to develop innovative programming for Oberlin students and graduates. They also assure participant safety and program quality within the rapidly changing conditions of Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia.

Event sponsored by OCREECAS.
