Discussion | Issues, Limits, and Possibilities: Responses to African Students Displaced by the War in Ukraine (online)


The war in Ukraine has displaced more than 16,000 African students – 25% of the international student population in Ukraine – who were pursuing graduate and undergraduate education in the country. Their evacuation from the country was fraught, and their study prospects for the coming academic year are in limbo. While most of them were highly motivated and ambitious students in STEM and health fields, the conflict left many actively looking for a place to continue their education at a global college or university. Meanwhile, hopes of families that banked their household income on the attainment of an affordable European degree and its door-opening possibilities have been dashed as the Ukraine conflict continues, immigration rules for non- Ukrainians across Europe start to force students to make hard choices, and students who were poised to transform their fortunes now risk becoming refugees. Against this backdrop, Issues, this is a discussion among stakeholders involved in different aspects of the response to Ukraine. Panelists include Ms. Isha Sesay, the CEO of OkayMedia and acclaimed journalist, Macire Aribot, Founder of NoirUnited, an advocacy platform for African students displaced in Ukraine; Dr. Rajika Bhandari, international higher education expert and Dr. Adebayo Akande, Chairman and President of the University of Health Sciences Antigua; Emily London- Jones, Vice President of Enrollment Management, Miles College; Eltahir Ali, 5th-year medical student at Dnipro Medical Institute of Traditional and Non-traditional Medicine (Ukraine).

Lecture | The Transition of Ukraine’s Energy: From Part of the Soviet Economy Towards a United Europe (online)


Ukraine’s energy sector was an essential part of the Soviet economy and a kind of a springboard for the USSR’s energy expansion to Europe. The dissolution of the Soviet Union broke this system, but for decades Russia has been trying to save its dominance over Ukraine, including its energy infrastructure. Ukraine, in turn, was taking steps to free itself from Russia’s dominance and become closer to Europe. But the path was not smooth, in part because of the obstacles Russia was creating, and its political agents in Ukraine’s politics. Ukraine’s energy sector transformation was complicated by populism and paternalism, difficulties transitioning from a command economy to a market economy, oligarchs, rent-seeking and corruption. The invasion Russia started on February 24 has broken any illusion that the Kremlin gave up on using its energy weapon. But it was another severe push for the Ukrainian energy sector to break with Russia and deepen its integration with the European Union. The history of Ukrainian energy is a perfect example of the fact that energy is still deeply tied to international competition and geopolitics. Speaker Andrian Prokip is the director of the Energy Program at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future (an independent think tank in Kyiv) and serves as a senior associate at the Kennan Institute (Woodrow Wilson Center, Washington DC).

Book Discussion | Eyes as Big as Plates 2: Photographing the World


The ongoing photography series Eyes as Big as Plates started out in 2011 studying personifications of nature and folkloric explanations of natural phenomena. A decade later it has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging in nature, taking the Norwegian-Finnish artist duo Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen to sixteen countries on a quest to understand our relationship with our surroundings. The second book in the series features new portraits produced in collaboration with retired wrestling coaches, pub patrons, Sami reindeer herders, Aboriginal uncles, kantele players, librarians, wild boar hunters, and surfers across four continents.

Book Discussion | The Prophet of the Andes: Author Talks About History of Judaism in Latin America (in-person and online)


The dean of CUNY's journalism school Graciela Mochkofsky discusses her book about the true story of a Peruvian carpenter who converted hundreds of Christians to Judaism and sparked a wave of Latin American Jewish communities. She will discuss the book with award-winning writer Judith Thurman. Segundo Villanueva was born in 1927 in a tiny farming village in the Andes; when he was seventeen, his father was murdered and Segundo was left with his Bible. After years of religious study, Segundo discovered a version of Judaism pieced together from his readings of the Old Testament, and his makeshift synagogue attracted crowds of fervent believers. Then, in a series of extraordinary events, the community converted to Orthodox Judaism and resettled in the West Bank. Fifteen years in the making, The Prophet of the Andes documents Segundo's incredible journey that made him an unlikely pioneer for a new kind of Jewish faith, one that is now attracting masses of impoverished people across Latin America.

Gutierrez uses dreamy synth sounds, spare arrangements, and his long standing obsession with church-like harmonies. The special performance expands his vision to incorporate dancers and live musicians offering the audience a heightened world of fantastical drama.

Book Discussion | This Month a Century Ago: Publication of Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis (online)


Commemorating the 1922 publication of Babbitt by American writer and playwright Sinclair Lewis. Considered a satirical classic on American culture and society as well as a harsh critique on the vacuity of middle class life and the social pressure toward conformity and material consumerism, Babbitt is possibly more pertinent than ever. This discussion will be presented by Steven Michels, author of Sinclair Lewis and American Democracy and Sally E. Parry, Executive Director of the Sinclair Lewis Society. "Whatever the misery, he could not regain contentment with a world which, once doubted, became absurd." - Sinclair Lewis, Babbitt
