The MLA has shown a considerable drop in the number of foreign language programs, and enrollment has been declining as well. In the new global political contexts in which Russia finds itself, this session welcomes submissions that consider how teaching Russian studies has changed, its current and continuing relevance in United States higher education, and pedagogical innovations to maintaining interests in the field.
