The Zenovia Sochor Parry Memorial Lecture in Ukrainian Politics

Zenovia Sochor ParryIn 2000 Zena Sochor Parry's family and friends established with the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University the Zenovia Sochor Parry Memorial Lecture in Ukrainian Politics.

Dr. Zenovia Sochor Parry was a Professor at Clark University, significant and respected scholar in the field of Soviet and East European history and politics. From the early 1980s until her death in February 1998, she was a member of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute. The goal of the fund is to raise enough money to endow an annual lectureship (currently the lecture is presented biennially) that will attract world class scholars and to make possible the publication of the annual address. The interest earned by the fund is used to spread information on contemporary Ukraine in the American university environment.

A special presentation to honor Zenovia Sochor Parry's life and work is biennially held at Harvard University. Contributions to support the Zenovia Sochor Parry Memorial Fund at Harvard University may be sent in Professor Sochor Parry's memory to:
