Coffee Shop Talk--Thursday, Sept. 4, 8-9 pm: Ukraine and Great Power Politics in the 21st Century

Dr. Martha Kuchar, Professor and Chair of the English Department, and Dr. Andreea Mihalache-O'Keef, Assistant Professor in the Public Affairs Department, will discuss the genesis of the conflict in Ukraine and its current impasse. Their analysis is framed against the background of U.S. foreign policy and European Union politics, juxtaposed with Russia's attempts to redefine itself as a major power, while increasing pressures on civil society within its borders. To understand the situation in Ukraine, one must also keep in mind the tensions and interactions in the global political and economic landscape. Coffee Shop Talks provide a relaxed forum for discussion and inquiry on a wide range of topics. Each one-hour talk includes a short presentation, followed by questions and discussion. Talks are free and open to the public.
