Lou Chitkushev, a Metropolitan College associate professor and chair of the computer science department, traveled to Skopie, Macedonia, last June to meet Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski. The two discussed ways to bring MET graduate programs in information technology to Macedonia and bring more Macedonian students to BU. Chitkushev presented Gruevski with the book The Other Balkan Wars, published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “This book provides a unique insight into the causes and consequences of the Balkan wars of 1912–1913, which have shaped the modern history of Macedonia and the entire region,” Chitkushev says. “Moreover, this book was prohibited in Macedonia for more than eighty years and was just recently translated.” Chitkushev also visited Korea and Japan, where he delivered presentations to BU alumni on the security challenges of globalization.
