Russian Studies Colloquium – “Doing History: Public Outreach, Applied History and Research Challenges in Eastern Europe” on Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. in the Russian Studies Center.  Dr. Sofia Dyak  (director of the Center for Urban History of East Central Europe in Lviv, Ukraine) and the Russian Studies faculty will lead a discussion on the challenges of teaching and doing history, especially in places marked by a sharp tension between local memory (the stories we tell about ourselves) and “real” history recovered by historians.
