Like many of you, we at the Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia are dismayed by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. While we are a community of interdisciplinary scholars who study a variety of topics and countries, today all of our thoughts are first and foremost with the people of Ukraine. We stand with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who oppose this senseless, unprovoked war.
As each of us ask ourselves what we can do, we at the Jordan Center will be continuing our mission of supporting scholars and scholarship around Russia and its impact on the world. Like most Centers, we have speakers scheduled in the coming weeks and months who are not focused on the war. While these events will now all occur under the shadow of this war, we believe this is an important way that our Center can contribute at a time when the need for high-quality information about Russia, Ukraine, and their neighbors is so acute. We hope you will continue to join us, but we understand that this may be a difficult time for many of you.
