Elise Giuliano Quoted in WaPo on the Politics of Historical Memory in Ukraine
May 27, 2022

Elise Giuliano (Lecturer in Political Science: Director of the MARS-REERS Program) is quoted in an article published in the Washington Post on renaming Ukrainian landmarks and streets to eliminate Russian names.

“The issue of historical memory in Ukraine is extremely politicized,” said Elise Giuliano, a political science professor at Columbia University’s Harriman Institute. She said ridding Ukraine of most vestiges of its Soviet and Russian past has sometimes been divisive, and not just in the breakaway east.”
