EAST EUROPEAN STUDIES--THE NDEA EXPERIENCE.
LEGTERS, LYMAN H.
THE EXPERIENCE OF THE LANGUAGE AND AREA CENTERS PROGRAM UNDER TITLE VI, NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT, CLARIFIES CURRENT NATIONAL EFFORT TO STRENGTHEN UNIVERSITY WORK IN EASTERN EUROPE APART FROM RUSSIA. OVERSHADOWED FOR MANY YEARS BY RUSSIA, THE REMAINDER OF THE REGION IS COMING INTO ITS OWN AS A SUBJECT OF STUDY. THE LANGUAGES ARE INCREASINGLY AVAILABLE IN THE REGULAR CURRICULUM, DESPITE MODEST ENROLLMENTS, AND THE OTHER DISCIPLINES HAVE SHIFTED TO MORE COMPLETE COVERAGE OF THE REGION. FEDERAL SUPPORT HAS BEEN PROVIDED UNDER NDEA IN TWO COMPLEMENTARY WAYS--EXISTING PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN ASSISTED TO EXPAND BEYOND RUSSIAN AND COVER ALL OF EASTERN EUROPE, AND NEW PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED WITH A NONRUSSIAN FOCUS IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. CONTINUATION OF SUCH SUPPORT IS NEEDED TO ASSURE THAT THIS RELATIVELY NEW DEVELOPMENT WILL REACH FRUITION AND OVERCOME YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL NEGLECT OF EASTERN EUROPE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "AMERICAN COUNCIL OF LEARNED SOCIETIES NEWSLETTER," VOLUME 17, NUMBER 6, OCTOBER 1966. (AUTHOR)
