Ukraine's 2014 revolution and subsequent war with Russia are discussed in the news and online, but a crucial factor missing from these conversation has been Ukrainians themselves. What were Ukrainian reasons for organizing in the hundreds of thousands to overthrow their president, and what motivated those Ukrainians who opposed the Maidan movement? Where did Ukrainian Jews, Crimean Tatars, Rroma people and other minorities find themselves in a complex moment of political change? How did the situation transition to war with Russia, and what hope for a better future is there today in Ukrainian politics? Join researcher Anton Guz for a presentation and Q&A on recent Ukrainian history and what we in Canada can learn from the experiences of Ukrainians.
Light snacks will be available.
The Winchevsky Centre unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible, but a chairlift is available.
