Profs. Popova & Shevel Appear on American Enterprise Institute Podcast, "The Eastern Front"

January 29th, 2024

In this episode of The Eastern Front entitled Defining Ukraine’s National Identity, Giselle Donnelly, Dalibor Rohac, and Iulia Joja speak with Maria Popova and Oxana Shevel, associate professors of political science at McGill University and Tufts University, respectively, about their new book, Russia and Ukraine: Entangled Histories, Diverging States.

Some of the issues discussed include: How has Ukraine resisted Russian influence and pursued democracy? What impact has the war had on Ukrainian self-conception and identity? And how has academia tackled the problems of Russia-focused research dominance and the resulting spread of Russia-centric narratives about Eastern Europe?
