Water in Central Asia: Tributaries of Change

A sequence of three courses focused on the past, present, and future of water in Central Asia for students in the social sciences, business, engineering, and the humanities.

The University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Russian and East European Studies (REES) and Asian Studies Center (ASC) propose a project to strengthen interdisciplinary connections among Pitt faculty and students across the humanities, social sciences, and pre-professional programs in business and engineering. Led by Dr. Nancy Condee (REES Director/Slavic Languages and Literatures) and Dr. Ruth Mostern (World History Center Director/ASC affiliate), the project faculty team will develop three new undergraduate courses on the theme of “Water in Central Asia.” This course sequence will incorporate high-impact experiential learning activities, including mentored research projects and virtual peer-to-peer exchanges with students at Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan. The courses will be taught in spring 2019 through spring 2020 and then incorporated into Pitt’s regular curriculum and into two existing student credential programs, as well as a planned new Central Asian Studies Certificate.
