During Spring Quarter, we had hoped to promote three talks on US-Russia relations and politics. All events are on hold because of the coronavirus situation. We hope these talks can be rescheduled.
These events were planned by the NU Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies (REEES) Research Program. REEES supports research, teaching, and outreach by organizing speaker series, workshops, and conferences and featuring NU faculty and graduate student scholarship, exhibits, and art.
- John Beyrle is the former US Ambassador to Russia (2008-2012) and current Chairman of the Board of the US-Russia Foundation. His talk was planned for Harris L07 on April 23 at 5:30pm.
- Steven Karl Pifer was the third United States Ambassador to Ukraine (1998 to 2000) and is a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution's Center on the United States and Europe as well as the Director of Brookings' Arms Control Initiative. His talk, Don't Let New START Die, was planned for May 7 at noon, location TBA.
- Eliot Borenstein from NYU was to discuss his new book -- Plots against Russia: Conspiracy and Fantasy after Socialism--on May 29 at 1pm, location TBA.
