A multidisciplinary roundtable
Platform Ukraine is a new multidisciplinary project that aims to analyse and better understand the Ukrainian crisis of 2014 and its broader meanings for the entire post-socialist space.
In the course of one year, the project will bring together academics from a variety of disciplines to identify and discuss the most urgent themes that relate the Ukrainian crisis to the wider post-Socialist space. A one-day symposium, regular multidisciplinary workshops, a website, and a final conference will create the setting for discussing new ideas and understanding the prevalent trends and tensions in the contemporary post-socialist region.
We will be launching the project with a multidisciplinary roundtable in which a panel of speakers will be giving their perspectives on the Ukrainian crisis and will engage in a debate with all the participants.
The speakers will be:
- Professor Barry Fuller (Professor in Surgical Sciences, University College London)
- Professor Ivan Gout (Professor of Cancer Biochemistry, University College London)
- Andy Hunder (Director of the Ukrainian Institute in London)
- Professor Richard Sakwa (Professor of Russian and European Politics, University of Kent)
In addition, during the launch will be shown a short presentation on Ukrainian Language and Crisis, which was prepared by Marta Jenkala (Senior Teaching Fellow in Ukrainian Language, University College London).
Wine reception will follow the event.
