An in-person and live-streamed international conversation on Election Day will offer direct and unique insight into the current situation in Ukraine.

Guests will include:

Oleksandr Sanzhara, Speaker, Dnipro City Council
Nataliya Chernyshova, Dnipro City Council
Yulia Dmytrova, Head of TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) Ukraine
Larissa Babij, artist, writer, activist, Kyiv, Ukraine
Dr. Pavel Khazan, Environmental Scientist and Officer in Ukrainian Armed Forces (to be confirmed)

Moderated by Robert Schumann Professor and Chair of the Environmental Studies Program, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Biology, and Director of the College of the Environment Barry Chernoff and Associate Professor of Dance, Environmental Studies, Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, and Education Studies Katja Kolcio.

The Standing With Ukraine series is sponsored by the College of the Environment, the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life, and the Fries Center for Global Studies. Earlier this spring, Kolcio and Chernoff hosted a series of livestreamed international conversations, which allowed members of the Wesleyan community to connect with students, civic leaders, experts, and artists in Ukraine in an effort to humanize the war by hearing their perspectives from the war zone.

Special thanks to Associate Director of Visual Arts and Adjunct Instructor in Art Benjamin Chaffee, the Center for the Arts, and the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery.
