Eastern Europe is one the fastest changing regions in the world. It is impossible to understand the "new" Europe or even follow the current events without some knowledge of the people, history, and languages of the Eastern Europe. This incredibly diverse region is a patchwork of dozens of languages, some closely and some distantly related (Slavic, Germanic, Baltic, Romance, Iranian, Armenian), and yet others belonging to non-related language groups (Finno-Ugric, Turkic, Caucasian, Mongolic, Semitic). Religions of Eastern Europe include several historically diverse Christian denominations (Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, Lutheran Protestantism), two branches of Islam (Sunni and Shiite), Judaism, and Tibetan Buddhism. In this course, you will learn about both major and "minority" languages spoken in Eastern Europe, against the background of history, religion, and current politics of the countries where these languages are spoken.
