REEESNe Network

Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies Northeast Network

Launched in December 2020, the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies Northeast Network (REEESNe) is comprised of institutions and individuals along the Northeast corridor and neighboring areas. REEESNe facilitates information sharing and collaboration in order advance teaching and learning about the REEES area, with a primary focus on the undergraduate and master’s levels. We have particular interests in linking institutions of different types, from established centers to colleges or universities with only one or two specialist faculty, and in expanding knowledge of REEES-related career opportunities outside the academy. 

Our plans for the coming years include: an occasional newsletter; virtual events on REEES-relevant career opportunities; in-person gatherings for faculty on strategies to enhance enrollment in REEES courses and programs; in-person conferences and networking opportunities for undergraduates; and more. 

Membership in REEESNe currently includes centers, programs, departments, and/or individuals at the following institutions
