History Behind the Headlines is a webinar series featuring prominent historians discussing the history behind current events.

Russia and Ukraine: History Behind the Headlines
March 4, 2022, at 2 PM ET

Moderator: David Engerman, Leitner International Interdisciplinary Professor, Department of History and Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Yale University
Panelists: Serhii Plokhii, Mykhailo S. Hrushevs'kyi Professor of Ukrainian History and the director of the Ukrainian Research Institute, Harvard University; Sergey Radchenko, Wilson E. Schmidt Distinguished Professor, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies; and Marci Shore, associate professor of history, Yale University

“Russia and Ukraine: History Behind the Headlines,” brings together three leading scholars to place current events in historical context. With each historian approaching the current conflict from a different perspective, attendees will learn about the deeply intertwined histories of Russia and Ukraine, as well as the Cold War and post-Cold War disputes that have led to the Russian invasion. This session will demonstrate not only the value, but indeed the necessity of thinking historically if we are to understand the worlds around us. This session is open to all, but might be particularly useful for teachers and their students at college and high school levels. This webinar is free to attend. Registration is required.
