Russia Watch 20/20: 20 Russians Who Will Change the World

11/01/2017 - 4:00pm to 5:15pm
Jacobs Science Building, Room 121
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Molly T. Blasing

Much recent media attention has been given to a scintillating cast of characters surrounding the “Russia Investigation,” from former spies to Kremlin lawyers to pop star sons of real estate magnates.  Dr. Blasing's talk, however, moves away from sensationalism to instead offer profiles of 20 contemporary Russians who are engaged in important, innovative—sometimes controversial--work in their fields of journalism, science and technology, human rights and the creative arts.  Join us for part 2 of our year-long “Russia Watch” series and learn about some of the many creative innovators working in and around Russia today.
