In spring 2022, Professor Valentino offered a new upper-level undergraduate course, “How to Translate Anything,” jointly listed between Slavic, Honors, and Comparative Literature. The course has drawn a very talented group of high-achieving students working in a range of languages from Spanish, French, and Italian to Hindi, Russian, Croatian, Korean, and American Sign Language. Professor Valentino will offer this course again in spring 2023. Finally, late 2022 was supposed to mark the end point for a four-year, $1M grant from the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine for which Professor Valentino served as a co-director. The project had achieved many of its goals in support of Ukrainian higher education initiatives associated with strategic communications training by the time research and teaching in Ukraine abruptly ceased due to the Russian attack of the country in March of 2022. Professor Valentino has shifted his efforts for the time being into a variety of service projects to help displaced students and scholars and is currently serving on a coordination committee for PEN USA in search of ways to help displaced Ukrainian writers.
