Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute for “A Humanitarian Aid Kit of War Songs: A Bilingual Reading with Ukrainian Poet Iya Kiva.” Mark Andryczyk (Harriman Institute) will moderate.
Iya Kiva is a poet, translator, and journalist. She was born in Donetsk and fled the war in 2014 to settle in Kyiv. Shortly after arriving, she began shifting from writing in her native Russian to writing in her second language, Ukrainian. She is the author of two volumes of poetry and the recipient of numerous awards for her poetry and translation. She is currently a fellow at the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program.
Amelia Glaser, a translator and professor of Literature at UC San Diego will join Iya Kiva for this event.
