This course will examine the transformation of the one-time communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe since 1989 with particular attention to developments during the past five years. The hopefulness that characterized the region at the end of Communism has given way to extreme nationalism, xenophobia, and something now defined as "illiberalism". What has happened? Is there a way back to the promise of 1989? Fee includes bag lunch.
