War in Ukraine: A panel discussion invitation by the University of Freiburg

Topic: “Return of the Empire? Putin’s war and its Global Implications”

Freiburg, Mar 04, 2022

The University of Freiburg strongly condemns Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine and would also like to further stimulate exchange on this issue. Against this backdrop, on March 9 2022 at 6 p.m., it invites the DFG Research Training Group “Empires: Dynamic Change, Temporality and Post-Imperial Orders” to a public online panel discussion on “The Return of the Empire? Putin’s War and Its Global Implications”. The panel discussion aims to place the war beyond the current situation spatially and temporally into larger historical, economic, and political contexts, taking into account Europe, China, and the United States. Media representatives are also cordially invited and are welcome to contact the media contact for interview requests.

Discussion participants include:

  • Prof. Dr. Sabine Dabringhaus (University of Freiburg, East Asian History)
  • Prof. Dr. Heinrich Kirschbaum (University of Freiburg, Slavic philology)
