Russian, Eastern European and Eurasian Studies
Reilly Cash's interests in this dynamic, complex region and culture motivated her to become more involved in the Stetson's Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (SPREES) where she worked to help organiz the program’s annual events. She also served as a Russian tutor and Russian Club secretary/vice president.
In fall 2019, Reilly spent a semester in Kyiv, Ukraine, and traveled to Russia and the Caucasus. Her study abroad honed her Russian skills and deepened her understanding of the Soviet Union, its aftermath and its lingering impact on international relationships in the Russian-speaking world. Her senior project deals with the complexity of these international relationships, focusing on the representation of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict in documentary films.
After graduation, Reilly plans to intern with the Armenian Volunteer Corps in Yerevan, Armenia. After a year or two working abroad, she hopes to pursue a position with the federal government in linguistics and/or international relations.
