Russia’s War in Ukraine: The Human Cost -- VIRTUAL

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused unprecedented destruction in Ukraine. With no anticipated end in sight, conversations to encourage continued interest on the war in Ukraine are vital to understanding how we got to where we are and to digest a firsthand account of the Ukrainian refugee crisis and its global impact. Facilitated by Emily Channell-Justice, this discussion also will cover what is important to know about Ukraine & Russia’s relationship and what the responses have been to this war both in Ukraine and globally. 

This event is virtual. A Zoom link will be shared with registrants the day of the program.

Emily Channell-Justice is the Director of the Temerty Contemporary Ukraine Program at the Ukrainian Research Institute, Harvard University. She is a sociocultural anthropologist who has been doing research in Ukraine since 2012.

Her ethnography Without the State: Self-Organization and Political Activism in Ukraine is forthcoming, and her edited volume, Decolonizing Queer Experience: LGBT+ Narratives from Eastern Europe and Eurasia (Lexington Books) was published in 2020.
