The Central Eurasian Studies Summer Institute (CESSI) offers intensive Central Eurasian language courses alongside a cultural enhancement program which introduces students to the rich world of Central Eurasian history and culture.
The Center for Russia, East Europe and Central Asia (CREECA) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will host CESSI in the summer of 2013 from June 17 to August 9.
In summer 2013, they will offer instruction in first- and second-year Kazakh, Tajik, Uyghur, and Uzbek. Scheduling of classes is contingent upon sufficient enrollment. Please apply to CESSI as early as possible to help ensure that your class will be offered. Other Central Eurasian languages may be added to this list if there is enough interest. Please contact the CESSI program coordinator if you are interested in studying a language not listed above.
