The meaning of Eastern Exploits is twofold
One: A striking or notable deed, feat or adventure
Two: to utilize for profit or take advantage.
This blog will encompass both of these definitions as I seek to document my travels throughout Eastern Europe and my research on human trafficking in the former Soviet Union.
Current Issues in the Post-Soviet Region Lecture Series
This semester I received a small grant from the Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Alumni Development Fund from American Councils and the U.S. Department of State to organize a lecture series on the current issues in the post-Soviet region. As part of the lecture series I am giving a talk on the "New Trends in Human Trafficking as a Consequence of the War in Ukraine: In Recognition of Human Trafficking Awareness Month." I am looking forward to sharing my research from this past summer and educating people at Clayton State about the war in Ukraine and its consequences as part of human trafficking awareness month.
