Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Russia (and Nina Khrushcheva) But Were Afraid to Ask

Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

To celebrate the release of Nina Khrushcheva's co-authored book In Putin’s Footsteps: Searching for the Soul of an Empire Across Russia’s Eleven Time Zones, we invite you to a conversation with Khrushcheva, Professor of International Affairs at The New School.

What is the character of Russia? How and why has Russia been cast as an international villain? What do Russians themselves think of the Kremlin and its current occupant, President Vladimir Putin? How do Russians perceive the world outside its 11 time zones?

Come hear Khrushcheva discuss her cultural, emotional, and political journeys in Russia, and illuminate how a writer comes to terms with their own background and beliefs in a conversation with Mary Watson, Executive Dean of the Schools for Public Engagement and Peter J. Hoffman, Assistant Professor, Graduate Programs in International Affairs at The New School.

This event is co-sponsored by the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs and the Executive Dean’s Office of the Schools of Public Engagement
