Event Details

Initiated in 2003, the Annual Cambridge Stasiuk Lecture in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies at the University of Cambridge explores the internal dynamics and international implications of events in today's Ukraine and features the foremost experts in the fields of Ukrainian politics, history, and society. It is organised by Cambridge Ukrainian Studies, an academic centre at the University of Cambridge. 

The Sixteenth Annual Stasiuk Lecture, which will be held on Friday, 23 February 2018, will be delivered by Professor Mark von Hagen. His presentation is entitled 'Brest-Litovsk and the Making of Modern Ukraine and Russia'

In February 1918, the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk facilitated the emergence of an independent, internationally-recognised Ukrainian state. In the Annual Cambridge Stasiuk Lecture, Professor von Hagen explains these tumultuous events of a century ago and reflects upon their resonance today, at a critical juncture in the history of Ukrainian-Russian relations.

The event is free and open to the public, but online registration is required
