Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Join us for a conversation with Tatiana Voltskaya, a Russian journalist for Radio Liberty and a poet.

An intransigent critic of Putinism, Voltskaya has been a voice of freedom in Russia. In 2020, she was sued by the Russian state for her reporting on the spread of Covid-19. In 2022, she was designated a "foreign agent." Her political activism and her poetry oppose Russia's aggression in Ukraine.

Sponsored by the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, the School of History and Sociology, and the School of Modern Languages at Georgia Tech, with the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Program at Emory.
