The Current State of the Former Soviet Union
From the Sochi Olympics to the annexation of Crimea and subsequent destabilization of eastern Ukraine, Putin's Russia has caught the world's attention during much of 2014. This year's annual Russian Area Studies panel on "Russia NOW" will shed light on this central region of the world in a time of momentous transition. Speakers include Professor Philip Kohl, Anthropology Department; Dr. Nadiya Kravets, Postdoctoral Fellow, Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Center; and Professor Nina Tumarkin, History Department. Moderated by Professor Thomas Hodge, Russian Department.
