Indiana University offers one of the largest concentrations of Romanian Studies specialists in the United States; three years of language instruction during the academic year; a summer intensive language program; and regular international conferences on Romanian topics.
Indiana University’s Romanian collection is among the top four at university libraries in the United States. The Herman B Wells Library has more than 15,000 volumes in the Romanian language. The IU Libraries maintain exchanges with university libraries in Cluj and Bucharest and with the Romanian National Library. Indiana University’s Moldovan Collection is also growing in the broader context of the Slavic and East European collection’s efforts to support IU's growing academic interest in the small post-communist nations. It currently consists of about 1,700 titles. REEI has area related films and other materials for loan.
For more information on upcoming language and content classes, see the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures for academic year opportunities and the Summer Language Workshop for summer opportunities.
The Romanian Studies Organization brings together students across campus with an interest in Romania. REEI and the Romanian Studies Organization host the annual Romanian Studies Conference for graduate students and recent Ph.D.s in the humanities and social sciences.
