Seminary Teacher Receives National Recognition
Svitlana Malykhina, Lecturer of Russian Literature at Holy Trinity Seminary, has been selected from a national applicant pool to attend one of 22 summer study opportunities supported by National Endowment for the Humanities. The Endowment is a federal agency that each summer supports seminars and institutes at colleges and universities so that teachers can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.
Svitlana Malykhina will participate in the "Visual Resources for Teaching and Research in Early East Slavic Cultures" (http://www.nypl.org/research/chss/slv/neh/). The two-week program will be held at The New York Public Library and directed by Edward Kasinec.
The teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities to cover their travel, study, and living examples.
Topics for the 22 seminars and institutes offered for college and university teachers this summer include Appalachian history and culture, human rights, Jewish Studies, Anglo-Saxon saints, ancient Rome, Maya worlds, the Silk Road, and programs on site focusing on Venice, Rome, Paris, and Vienna. The approximately 450 teachers who participate in these studies will teach over fifty thousand American students this year.
