Translation and Interpreting Studies program (UWM TIS).
Due to stringent and immediate budget cuts imposed by our administration, the Russian to English track is “likely to be suspended for the foreseeable future” (read: cancelled) unless more students enroll in the 3-credit-hour Introductory Russian to English Translation Workshop *this fall*. I have been informed that our admin is aware of the value of TIS, of Russian expertise, etc.; still, something must go in order for the department to comply with system-wide financial measures, so this Russian translation seminar is on the chopping block unless enrollment increases enough to make the course profitable.
If you or someone you know might be interested in Russian to English translation, please reach out to Anne Fisher at fisherao AT uwm DOT edu so she can expedite your UWM application and free 2-hour online qualifying exam.

Scholars and Society fellowships enable faculty who teach and advise doctoral students to pursue research projects while in residence at a US-based cultural, media, government, policy, or community organization of their choice. Fellows and their colleagues at host institutions are expected to create a mutually beneficial partnership in which they collaborate, interact, and learn about each other’s work, motivating questions, methods, and practices. The Scholars and Society program complements the Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program, which places recent humanities PhDs in nonprofit and government organizations.
