Soviet and Eastern European Affairs

During 1968 - 1980 I was an active participant of Polish dissident movement. In particular, since 1976 I was a close collaborator of Workers Defence Committee - KOR.

During 1980 - 86 I offered:

A year course Polish Language and Composition at Wesleyan University. One student from this class, Laura Crago finally obtained Ph.D in Polish History at Yale University.
Delivered a series of lectures and panel discussions on Polish Dissident Movement at Rutgers University (NJ), Wesleyan University(CT), Carlton College (Min) and Lafayette College (Pa).
Published a 4 page long interview: Crisis in Poland: An Insider Sketches Its Origins for Lafayette Alumni Quarterly, Fall 1981.

Taught summer courses (1984 and 1985) Polish Fight for Freedom at Lafayette College.
Developed and taught Senior Colloquium Technology, Culture and Values: Soviet Model at Lafayette College. The course was pronounced by prof. Loren. A. Graham (MIT) the best course of this type offered to undergraduates in the US.
