Short Term

During Short Term 2003 Professor Costlow took students from the agricultural regions south of Moscow to the long-industrialized, mineral-rich Ural mountains, in a course that explored Environmental Issues in Cultural Context.  In this image students visit a Botanical garden in Ekaterinburg, one of the many former Soviet industrial cities whose air quality is now vastly improved – largely because of the closure of mammoth factories.
