FSU to host Ukrainian Fulbright Scholar for lecture

At a time when key U.S. allies in Eastern Europe are calling for a stronger pushback against Russia, including the Ukrainian Foreign Minister in a recent appearance before the Senate, Florida State University will host a scholarly lecture to provide a fresh look at the situation in Ukraine.

Maryna Shkuropat, professor at the Horlivka State Pedagogical Institute of Foreign Languages in Ukraine, will offer her insights in a lecture presented by FSU’s College of Social Science and Public Policy.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, at The Globe, 110 S. Woodward Ave.

A reception will precede the talk at  4:30 p.m. After the lecture, there will be ample time for audience questions, comments and discussion.

Currently in residence as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Southern California, Shkuropat will talk about the current political situation in her country and give a broad historical context to discover the roots of the present circumstances.

The event is sponsored by the College of Social Science and Public Policy’s Ruth K. and Shepard Broad International Lecture Series, in association with the Center for Global Engagement’s (CGE) Engage Your World series.
