July 28 @ 12:00 pm

Ukraine’s history, art, and culture are endangered by the ongoing war. This lecture and conversation series led by experts in the fields of history, art history, religion, archaeology, heritage, sociology, as well as museum curators and conservationists, among others, present the region’s rich historical and cultural complexity through its objects, sites, and monuments. A focus on the medieval and early modern periods featuring Greek, Latin, and Slavic contacts brings to the fore critical evidence to counter modern misrepresentations of Ukraine’s history and cultural heritage. Presented in association with Dumbarton Oaks and North of Byzantium.
