The Institute for European Studies (IES) promotes learning and research about European societies, languages, and cultures, while contributing to the training of a new generation of global citizens. IES was among the first major US university institutes to combine Eastern and Western European studies more than thirty years ago. Since then, we have updated this perspective by placing European countries and the European Union in a global and comparative context. The undergraduate minor in European Studies is administered by IES.


On September 13, renowned historian Stephen Kotkin will deliver the inaugural Luigi Einaudi Distinguished Lecture on "Soviet Collapse in the Fullness of Time: Lessons for Putin's Russia, Xi's China, and Beyond."
The Year-in-Review features highlights of new research initiatives, student opportunities, and events from the 2022-23 academic year.
