Perspectives on Language, Ethnicity, Nation in the Russian-Ukrainian Conflict


Friday, March 25, 2022, 7:30pm to 8:15pm



Organized by Yale University Library; with Volodymyr Dibrova

On February 24, 2022, Russian military forces entered the sovereign nation of Ukraine leaving many around the world in shock and disbelief. Those familiar with Russian history, however, noticed echoes from the past.

We invite you to join our educational discussion panel where three linguists contextualize different aspects of the on-going conflict. Each panelist has expertise in different areas of Russian and Ukrainian history and how concepts related to language, ethnicity, and national identity shape political conflicts in the region. 


Dr. Asya Pereltsvaig
Dr. Volodymyr Dibrova
Dr. Roslyn Burns

After the panel presentations, there will be Q & A.

Audience: Anyone, including those outside of the Yale or academic community, are invited to attend

Registration: Required for access to the Zoom room. You will also receive a reminder email 1-hour before the event.
