This 1-credit mini-course will focus on Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Bloc over the past 20 years as political and economic transition has swept the region. During this critical period in history, much of Central and Eastern Europe left communism behind (sometimes predictably, other times dramatically) and joined Western Europe as members of NATO and the EU.

The course will be team-taught by two U-M specialists on Eastern Europe: Anna Grzymala-Busse, associate professor, Department of Political Science; and Piotr Westwalewicz, lecturer in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. Two of eight lectures will be given by Aleksandar Kwasniewski, former President of Poland (1995-2005) and an expert on European integration.

Attendance at all lectures required. Political, cultural, and social changes will be the focus of readings and class discussions.
