Ukraine, Russia, and the Future of Europe

NEW VENUE: Pulitzer Hall 3rd Floor Lecture Hall
Please join us for a talk by Timothy Snyder (Professor of History, Yale University). Click here for directions to Pulitzer Hall.
Over 1.1 million people are internally displaced and over 6,000 have died in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. With violations to the Minsk II agreement, the future of peace in Eastern Europe remains uncertain and the post-WWII European order is now at risk. Yale historian Timothy Snyder will speak on the ongoing conflict and its significance for the region, Europe, and the world. Professor Snyder will discuss how what may appear to be a regional crisis could soon shape more of the world. 
Timothy Snyder is the Bird White Housum Professor of History at Yale University and the author of several books including Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin (2010) and The Red Prince: The Secret Lives of a Habsburg Archduke (2008). His history of the Holocaust, Black Earth, will be published this September by Crown Books.
This event is cosponsored by the Ukrainian Student Society of Columbia, the New York City-based non-profit organization Razom and the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute, Columbia University.
