“Russia: What Next?”

Kathryn W. Davis Memorial Lecture: Speaker, Ivan Kurilla, Professor of History and International Relations, European University at St. Petersburg
Apr 5, 2022, 8 PM
Free and open to the public

Ivan Kurilla, Professor of History and International Relations at the European University at St. Petersburg, will explore the experience of Russia’s war in Ukraine through Russian eyes, and look toward the future. Who or what is responsible for this catastrophic war? What do Russian people know about its progress, and how do various sectors of society feel about it? What is the possibility and trajectory of the future reintegration of Russia into the community of nations? Professor Kurilla will address these and related questions in a presentation whose main focus will be the complexity of Russian society at this moment, and his hopes for that portion of it that might eventually come to construct a new Russia.
