Protests in Ukraine, a referendum and base occupation in Crimea, G8 to G7, frenzy in the U.S. media...Confused? Intrigued? Come to a Haverford faculty panel for critical analysis and contextualization of current events in Crimea.
The Haverford community is invited to attend a faculty panel about the crisis in Crimea and the Ukraine and the world response to the recent events. Protests in Ukraine, a referendum and base occupation in Crimea, G8 becomes G7, frenzy in the US media...Wondering what is (or is not) happening and what it might mean?
Join us for a Haverford faculty panel for critical analysis and contextualization of current events in Crimea. Faculty will give brief presentations:
• Professor of History Linda Gerstein will discuss "Borderlands: Ukraine and Crimea and the History of Russian Empire—Imperialism and its Discontents;"
• Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science Michael Noonan will "consider the Crimean situations through the lens of great power politics and what it means for American foreign policy;"
• Professor of Economics Vladimir Kontorovich noted his "surprise at the fact that a panel on Crimea is being convened" and will argue that "nothing extraordinary has happened, and so we should not worry and carry on exactly as before."
Organized by Kat Poje; the Student Political Network; the Eastern European Alliance; the Bryn Mawr College Russian Club. Sponsored by the Haverford College Collections Committee and the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities.
