Book Launch — The Arts of War: Ukrainian Artists Confront Russia
The Ukrainian response to the 2022 Russian full-scale invasion has inspired a new appreciation for their country both within and beyond Ukraine. The steadfastness of Ukrainians in the defense of their country has surprised many. The stories presented in Blair A. Ruble's newest collection, The Arts of War, highlight the ways in which Ukrainians have long explored the meaning of their country and culture through the arts; and the manner in which the arts and their creators have empowered Ukrainians to confront the Russian invaders. Dr. Ruble will explain how these developments also offer intriguing clues about the culture, society, and politics of a post-war Ukraine.
This event will feature introductory remarks by Ukrainian Ambassador to the US H.E. Oksana Markarova.
