Catawba College prepares to host a conference on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

SALISBURY – Catawba College Associate Professor of Politics Norris Feeney will give a talk on the Russian invasion of Ukraine on March 24 at 11 am in Stanback Plaza on the Catawba campus in Salisbury.

Teaching will provide an opportunity to explore questions that individuals may have together.

Feeney will use the knowledge gained from studying past militarized conflicts to discuss the causes of this particular conflict more clearly, identify opportunities for a cessation of hostilities, and highlight the most likely outcomes and lasting consequences of the war in Ukraine.

The teaching session will begin with introductory remarks by Feeney designed to prepare the group to discuss the current crisis without resorting to unthinking hyperbole while respecting the seriousness of the situation and the importance of possible aftershocks. A brief outline of various scholarly explanations of the war will follow. The remainder of the event will feature conversations led by questions posed by the audience moderated by Feeney.
