Calling all Fulbrighters:
The largest European war since World War II rages on in Ukraine, and on Sept. 28 we have a unique opportunity to learn about it from many perspectives: those of political scientists, journalists, historians, theologians – and Fulbrighters who have photographed the plight and resolve of Ukrainians since Russia first invaded in 2014. Whether or not you’ve seen these 40 amazing photographs that the MN Chapter had printed and mounted, please join us for the largest Fulbright event ever at the University of St. Thomas!
WHAT: “Rebuild Ukraine, Restore Hope” interdisciplinary panel discussion of 40 wartime photos taken by Fulbrighters in Ukraine – and of current events in Ukraine.
WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 28, 6:30-8 p.m. No registration or RSVP is required; just come, view the photographs, ask questions of the panelists and talk about your Fulbright experiences with our St. Thomas hosts!
WHERE: John Roach Center auditorium, room 126, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, on the northwest corner of the intersection of Summit and Cleveland Avenues; parking available on surrounding streets and at the Anderson Ramp on Grand and Cretin avenues.
WHO: All Fulbrighters are urged to join St. Thomas students in hearing and questioning a discussion panel moderated by UST theology Prof. Amy Levad, comprising Rebuild Ukraine president and UST theology Prof. Paul Gavrilyuk, UST history Prof. Zsolt Nagy, UST political science Prof. Renee Buhr, UST emerging media Prof. Mark Neuzil, and Fulbright MN Chapter President Mike Dorsher, a UST alumnus.
WHY: Ukraine’s counter-offensive against the invading Russian military is grinding on as casualties mount and resolve wanes in the West, if not among Ukrainians. Now is the time for Fulbrighters to join St. Thomas students and faculty continue to help Ukrainians strive for safety, sovereignty and peace. This might be the last good chance for Fulbrighters to view these 40 poignant photographs – and it’s a great opportunity for Fulbrighters to interact with students and faculty at the Twin Cities’ second-largest campus.
