Nationalism in the Ukraine-Russia Conflict
How are we to understand what’s going on in Ukraine? Tom Elliott has offered to help us see it as a conflict between the Russian and Ukrainian national identities, not just geopolitical competition or power politics. In the autumn of 2018, Tom gave a course for Lyceum on “The Roots of Russian Nationalism,” covering such topics as: What is a nation? What is the distinctly Russian Nation? How is the sense of being Russian active in post-Soviet times? Join Tom on Zoom to explore how this concept of nationalism informs the present conflict.
