End Time: 09/14/2017 9:30 PM
Location(s): Margaret Clapp Library Lecture Room

Not since the years of the Cold War has
Russia been so dominant—or so
threatening—in global affairs as she is
today. President Vladimir Putin
continues to top Forbes’s list of the
world’s most powerful people. Russia
is once again a major player on the
world stage and has insinuated itself
into American politics to an absolutely
unprecedented degree. Our Wellesley
College “Russia experts” will address
some of the major challenges and
achievements of the world’s largest
country at a moment when Russian-US
relations are in a dangerous state of flux
and Russia marks the centennial of its
1917 Revolution. Participants:
Professor Jason Cieply, Russian
Professor Igor Logvinenko, Political
Science Department
Professor Nina Tumarkin, History

Organization: Russian Area Studies
