Friday, March 25, 2022 - 7:30pm to 8:15pm

On February 24, 2022, Russian military forces entered the sovereign nation of Ukraine leaving many around the world in shock and disbelief. Those familiar with Russian history, however, noticed echoes from the past.

We invite you to join our educational discussion panel where three linguists contextualize different aspects of the on-going conflict. Each panelist has expertise in different areas of Russian and Ukrainian history and how concepts related to language, ethnicity, and national identity shape political conflicts in the region.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Linguistics

After presentations, there will be Q & A.
