On July 1, 2015, the Department of German and Slavic Studies will have a new name: German and Russian Studies. “This name change highlights our emphasis on Russian literature, film, and culture and on Russian as a critical language. With our new hire, Dr. Irina Erman, joining us as a tenure track assistant professor of Russian this fall, we are poised to build on the stellar work of our retiring colleague Professor Raisa Gomer and continue to offer our students an excellent Russian Studies program,” observes Dr. Morgan Koerner, Department Chair-Elect.
