    • "A Quarrel in a Faraway Country...": "The End of History" Ends in Ukraine

      Jun 3
      9:00AM – 10:00AM
      Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall | Room: 114 — 1 Prospect Street

      Marci Shore, Associate Professor of History

      On 27 September 1938, as European leaders pursued negotiations in Munich surrounding Adolf Hitler's demand to annex the Sudetenland, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain addressed the British people. "How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas masks here because of a quarrel in a far-away country between people of whom we know nothing," he said. In 2014 the Donbas became that faraway place. This lecture will address the uses and disadvantages of historical analogies, and explore how the fate of the world is now being decided in Ukraine.
