Academic Studies Press is pleased to announce a new series on pedagogy, Issues in the Teaching of East European and Eurasian Languages and Cultures. In this series, ASP will publish edited volumes and monographs on the teaching of the languages and cultures (including literature and film, among other aspects of culture) of the peoples of Eastern Europe and Eurasia, including multiple ethnic groups such as Abkhazians, Jews, Roma, and Uyghurs, who currently have no nation-state in the region.

Topics of relevance for this series include (but are not limited to): teaching learners from diverse backgrounds, teaching learners with differing abilities, decolonizing the curricula for language and cultural studies, reassessing and expanding the canon, teaching with social media, connecting the language and/or culture curriculum with other subjects from among the liberal arts and professional disciplines, engaging learners in community with native speakers from the target culture, fostering critical thinking through the study of language and/or culture, fostering collaboration skills through the study of language and/or culture, assessing and documenting learning outcomes in the study of language and/or culture, among others.
