Research Infographic V 1

The projects are all exciting and range from careful archival studies of medieval romances to understanding the dynamics of political dissidence in Ukraine today. Each project below came from a student's independent initiative, usually oriented toward the completion of a senior thesis, master's project, or dissertation. In some cases, the fruits of research will be a deeper knowledge of European history and life. In all cases, the research experience will be rich, complicated, and rewarding.
