Literary Readings & Conversation about Life & Art in Today’s Ukraine

Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute for literary readings and a conversation with Iryna Tsilyk. Moderated by Mark Andryczyk.

During the meeting, Iryna Tsilyk will read some of her poems as well as excerpts from her essays, and talk about the life of Ukrainians—and, in particular, Ukrainian artists—in a time of war. Many of them are fighting, others have become medics and volunteers, while hundreds have already been killed. Does art have any power in times of war? What tools can artists use? What does Ukrainian culture tell us today about the past, present and future of Ukraine? These issues and other will be focused on during the event’s discussion and Q&A.
