Beyond the West: Nationalism, Religious Literacy, and the War in Ukraine


Location: C103, Hesburgh Center for International Studies


Featuring John Rees, Professor of Politics and International Relations, The University of Notre Dame Australia

This lecture will explore how the lead-up to war in Ukraine tragically exposed liberal blind spots toward nationalism and religion, and why unlearning these habits will aid in the struggle for peace. 

This event is initiated by the Kroc Institute’s Contending Modernities initiative and co-sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and Nanovic Institute for European Studies, both part of the Keough School of Global Affairs.
