This week's episode features audio from the 2022 Charleston In Between virtual conference from a session titled "In the News: Ukraine” moderated by Ann Okerson, Senior Advisor, Center for Research Libraries, and featuring Arik Burakovsky, Assistant Director, Russia and Eurasia Program, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University;  Quinn Dombrowski, Academic Technology Specialist, Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, and the Library, Stanford University; Gwen Evans, Vice President, Global Library Relations, Elsevier; Kent Lee, President and CEO, East View Information Services, Inc; and Dr. Tetiana Yaroshenko, Vice-President for Research and IT, the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.

This exciting “In the News” panel will discuss updates on recent news developments, with a focus on the Ukraine Conflict and its chilling impact on the conduct of research, scholarship and education. What’s happening and what are we to make of it? This discussion will leave you reflecting on both the world situation and how world events can affect the kind of academic activities society relies on and almost takes for granted.
