In the American psyche, Russia has moved from a remnant of the Cold War to the top of headlines around the world. How did we get here? Russia expert Kathryn Stoner will discuss how Russia’s history led to President Putin’s rise to power, why he moved toward a more authoritarian regime, and how Russia’s relationship with the United States has changed, particularly since President Trump took office.

Prior to the talk, please join us for a reception with light hors d'oeuvres and nonalcoholic beverages. There will be a cash bar.

Space is limited, so please register early.
