'Understanding the War in Ukraine'

Panel discussion set Feb. 28, in person and online

"Understanding the War in Ukraine" will be the subject of a free, public panel discussion with UD scholars, scheduled at 3:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 28, in the Gore Recital Hall of the Roselle Center for the Arts. The program will be presented in person and also streamed online.

Even though Russia's building for its invasion of Ukraine was widely publicized, the unleashing of the biggest war in Europe since 1945 has still come as a shock. What is it all about? What are Putin's grievances? Where are the participants coming from, culturally and historically? Why was the world unable to prevent all of this through diplomacy? What is going to happen next?

Exploring these topics will be

  • Stuart Kaufman, Department of Political Science and International Relations
  • Holly Myers, Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures
  • David Shearer, Department of History
  • Polly Zavadivker, Department of History and Jewish Studies Program

The program will include a Q&A with the audience.

Those attending in person must follow UD's COVID-19 guidelines.

To watch the livestream, go to UD Online.

This panel discussion is sponsored by UD's College of Arts and Sciences.
