History Pub Presents “Russia’s War in Ukraine”

The Eugene History Pub Talks presents:

“Russia’s War in Ukraine” with Julie Hessler, associate professor of history, University of Oregon.

Monday, April 11
7:00–8:30 p.m. PDT
Live via Zoom (RSVP below)

Julie Hessler is historian of the Soviet Union with interests spanning social, economic, cultural, and political history. Her first book, A Social History of Soviet Trade: Trade Policy, Retail Practices, and Consumption, 1917–1953 (Princeton University Press, 2004), explored the social consequences of socialism in the retail sector, including the changing contours of black market activity and shifts in consumption, over three and a half decades of Soviet rule. 

Hessler’s current research concerns Soviet cultural relations with Africa and Asia, such as Soviet universities’ accommodation of international students from the Third World, and she is working on her latest book, about anti-imperial solidarity in Soviet culture.

This event is cosponsored by the University of Oregon’s Department of History, Lane County History Museum, and Viking Braggot Co. Open to the public and free to attend.
