Interdisciplinary Dialogue: Russian War in Ukraine

Powered by the University LibrariesStarting in 2015, the Interdisciplinary Dialogues have addressed crucial issues to the campus community including immigration, the intersection of race and COVID-19, the January 2021 insurrection, and women in American politics

The Russian War in Ukraine is an escalation of Russian, pro-Russian separatist, and Belarusian aggression against Ukraine that started in 2014. The devastating and ongoing attacks have prompted strong resistance from the Ukrainian people led by their President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

In addition to a humanitarian crisis on the western borders of Ukraine, we are witnessing mass protests all over the globe and a wave of coordinated sanctions and demonstrated unity from the U.S., Europe, and other governments around the world.

Join us for a virtual conversation with campus experts as we look into the Russian War in Ukraine, its consequences on the world community and the local university community from interdisciplinary perspectives.
