Ukraine and the Crimean Crisis "Teach In" and Discussion Panel
Time: 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Location: John Dewey Lounge, Old Mill 325
Description: WHAT’S GOING ON IN UKRAINE?
A Panel on the Upheaval in Ukraine and Russian Intervention in its Aftermath
If the Orange Revolution of 2004 taught many about Ukraine's precarious location between the European Union and Russia, the revolutionary events of the past few months
and Russia’s decision to send troops to Crimea have raised even more questions than the last. This Teach-In will offer an overview of the Maidan Revolution and responses
to it both within and beyond Ukraine. Who are the Maidan revolutionaries, and what are their goals? How did they succeed in removing a President who seemed so entrenched?
What have been the roles of social media, student organizations, and previously unknown political groupings on the right and the left in these events? What are the interests of Russia,
the EU, the U.S. and other governments in these events, and how have each of these groups responded to developments in recent days? What is going on in Crimea and in other parts of Ukraine right now?
A panel of UVM experts, including anthropologist Jennifer Dickinson, environmental and cultural scholar Adrian Ivakhiv, Russia scholar Kevin McKenna, and post-Soviet politics scholar Michele Commercio will answer these questions and others about what is going on in Ukraine right now. Professor of History Denise Youngblood will moderate. Please email email@example.com with questions.
