New Publics/Counterpublics: Perspectives on Identity and Civil Rights in U.S. - Ukrainian Affairs

Roundtable Discussion
by Dr. Jessica Zychowicz and Mr. Terrell Jermaine Starr
Thursday, January 4, 2018, 15:00 p.m. - 17:00 pm

Fulbright Office
20 Esplanadna Street, Suite 904, M "Palats Sportu", Kyiv

The goal of the Roundtable Discussion is to bring critical public attention and scholarly reflection to shifting ideas of civil society and identity in current U.S.-Ukraine relations, especially in the context of notions of "freedom" and "justice" pertaining to recent developments with regard to the legacy of Maidan, and ongoing conflict with Russia.

Dr. Jessica ZYCHOWICZ, U.S. Fulbright Scholar 2017-2018, is currently based at National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy teaching gender studies and completing a book on civic activism in the inter-revolutionary period 2004-2014 in Kyiv (University of Toronto Press). She is co-editing a series at the academic journal Krytyka on questions of race and postcolonialism. Dr. Zychowicz recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto Munk School of Global Affairs and earned her Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in 2015. She holds a B.A. from the University of California Berkeley, and served a full term as a Peace Corps volunteer from 2005-2007.

Mr. Terrell Jermaine STARR is the senior reporter at Foxtrot Alpha, a blog that focuses on military, technology and policy. Prior to that, he worked for FUSION as a national political correspondent covering the 2016 presidential campaign. He lived Ukraine as a Fulbright fellow 2009-2010, and Georgia as a Peace Corps volunteer. Mr. Starr has over four years of experience living in the former Soviet Union and more than eight years working as a reporter. He uses his media skills to break down Russia-U.S. relations in ways that make him not sound like a Washington hack. He is a frequent commentator on NewsOneNow with Roland Martin and a regular contributor to the New York Times and the Washington Post.
