Understanding Ukraine: A Panel for All

April 25, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

Are you curious about the events unfolding in Ukraine? Has the news of Russia’s invasion been on your social media newsfeed? The L&S Honors Program, in conjunction with the Chadbourne Residential College, would like to invite you to attend “Understanding Ukraine,” a student-focused, student-moderated panel aimed at helping undergraduate students (particularly first-year) learn about the depth and breadth of the conflict from some of UW-Madison’s most knowledgeable faculty members.

The Panel will take place at 6:00 PM in the Main Lounge at Chadbourne Residence Hall. Food (Ian’s Pizza, brownies, Ukrainian candy) and drinks will be served when doors open at 5:30 PM. The panel will begin promptly at 6:00 PM. Students will hear from leading experts, but will then be given the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session. The event is open to all UW students.

The expert panel will include the following:

  • Lukasz Wodzynski (German, Nordic, and Slavic) 
  • Michael Wagner (School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Political Science, and the La Follette School of Public Affairs) 
  • Dave Schroeder (Computer, Data & Information Sciences and the Wisconsin Security Research Consortium) 
  • Paul Wilson (Engineering Physics) 
  • Kathryn Hendley (Political Science & the Law School) 
  • B. Venkat Mani (German and the Institute for Research in the Humanities) 
  • Mark Copelovitch (Political Science and the La Follette School of Public Affairs) 
  • Jon Pevehouse (Political Science) 

Please consider joining us for pizza, treats, and conversation about one of the most important topics of our time. If you are interested, we invite you to RSVP using this link. Doing so will ensure that you receive a reminder email the day prior to the event. Please note, though, that RSVPs are not required. We encourage you to bring any peers you would like!
