The University of Michigan’s Center for Russian and East European Studies has approved a Post-Secondary Curriculum Development Program grant for Professor Michael Fuller.

Fuller, who teaches anthropology and archeology on the Meramec campus and coordinates yearly study abroad trips to archeological dig sites, will be creating an undergraduate curriculum for students working with artifacts from archaeological sites in Russia and the Balkans. Drawings and photographs of artifacts will be organized with their Slavic names and basic measurements.

 

“This project will use artifacts excavated by the STLCC team working in the Republic of Macedonia, as well as artifacts that I photographed while on my Fulbright Fellowship in Russia during 2006,” explained Fuller. The college sponsored Fuller’s study abroad archaeological field school for four years in the Republic of Macedonia. “Each field season resulted in smarter students and important archaeological discoveries,” said Fuller.

The new curriculum will be used by STLCC students in Anthropology 101 and Anthropology 104. It will be useful to undergraduate students in the USA, Russia, and the Balkans.
