In February we managed to hire our new office manager, Cecilia Greco, UF alumna and CES enthusiast, who conceded to move from the simpering grip of Chiberia and shortly thereafter, comfortable at her newly darned desk (thanks to our CES toolkit), established our first-ever Twitter page, https://twitter.com/UFCES.
In the mix, revolution gripped Ukraine, and we invited scholars to bid us new perspectives on the Ukrainian situation at our "Ukraine, Russia, and the European Union: Legacies of the Past" panel in March. One among the panel is the pictured Keith Darden, a quizzical Political Scientist from American University.
A moving video compilation put together by Eastside High School students and the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program for "Getting to Know You: Our Neighbors of European Heritage" is available to view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeBmMpuvPxo. As is Eastside High's index of individual interviews: http://eastside.sbac.edu/pages/EHS0421/5130169170831539170/IB_Program/IB_Oral_History_Project.
Alas, we conclude this post-Memorial Day update with Cecilia's avowal to resurrect this blog and keep us all in loop with CES news through the Summer. Until next time, friends.
