The University of Chicago Special Collections Research Center is currently home to an exhibit of Soviet children’s books entitled Adventures in the Soviet Imaginary: Children’s Books and Graphic Art. The exhibit is accompanied by an extensive collection of online resources and pedagogical materials.

During a three hour teacher workshop Claire Roosien will give participants a tour of the exhibit and an introduction to the web resources. She will also provide handouts for use in class and lead a discussion on ways that the material from the exhibit could be used to teach Russian language as well to teach on historical themes such as identity, colonialism, and industrialization.

Teachers will receive three CPDUs for attending.

If you plan to attend this workshop please register by sending an email to Dana Immertreu at immertreu@uchicago.edu.
