Ukraine: a Spotlight on the Culture of Change and Resistance

Friday June 24, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

While the Russian war in Ukraine continues, we in UBC’s Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies will focus on the experience of people of (and in) Ukraine. We will maintain solidarity with them until Ukraine triumphs over its unprovoked invaders.

Each month, around the day of the unprovoked Russian invasion on February 24 of this year, we will invite new speakers and guests who will contribute their unique insights and perspectives, helping us to keep our consciousness focused on the Ukrainian people, their bravery, their national spirit, as well as cultural and social changes occurring in Ukraine.

Please join us for the third event in the CENES series “Ukraine: a Spotlight on the Culture of Change and Resistance” on Friday, June 24, from 10-11:30 am Pacific time via Zoom:


“Imperial Roots of Nuclear Cyberwar: Nuclear Power Plants under Occupation,” Dr. Svitlana Matviyenko, Simon Fraser University (currently in Ukraine)

“Ukrainian Refugees (in Poland): How is Their Situation Unique?” Dr. Bozena Karwowska, University of British Columbia (currently in Poland)
