The Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center affiliate of the ASEEES and the Institute for Rusyn Language and Culture at Prešov University in Prešov, Slovakia, are now announcing the third annual three-week Studium Carpato-Ruthenorum International Summer School for Rusyn Language and Culture to be held from June 10-July 1, 2012. The Studium offers a unique experience to Slavists interested in exploring the history, culture, and language of an East Slavic people located on the border between East and West Slavic linguistic and cultural worlds. Intensive daily language study and history lectures, as well as a minicourse in Rusyn folklore, with parallel instruction offered in English and Rusyn form the basic curriculum. Participants will also enjoy excursions to the famous Carpathian wooden churches, museums, and folk festivals, along with pysanky and folksong workshops.
This is a one-of-its-kind opportunity to study Rusyn, codified in Slovakia in 1995. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2012. For further detailed information, a daily schedule, and an application, go to http://www.carpathorusynsociety.org
