From February 18-20th, the UH Russian Studies program will be hosting a workshop on campus. The workshop will be exploring two themes: Russia’s Asian and Pacific networks (on February 18th and 19th), and the consequences of Soviet involvement in World War II (on the 19th and 20th). The workshop is open to the public, but space is limited at the Imin Conference Center. If you are interested in attending, please contact Professor Matt Romaniello to reserve a seat.
In addition to the panels held at the Imin Center, there will be a plenary session, “The Study of Russia from the Center of the Pacific,” by Professor Amir Khisamutdinov of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, held on February 18th at 3:30 at Hamilton Library. Professor Khisamutdinov’s talk will focus on the experience of the Russians in Hawaiʻi and the later development of Russian Studies at UH.
