“War is a stern teacher”: Understanding the Russian invasion of Ukraine

October 17th, 2022 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, Virtual Programs, West Branch

The Manchester City Library invites you to an informative discussion on the conflict in Ukraine presented by Brandon K. Gauthier on Tuesday, October 18th at 6:30 pm. This program will be held at the Manchester City Library and on Zoom

This talk will explain the motives behind Russia’s continued invasion of Ukraine. The event will discuss the larger historical context surrounding Vladimir Putin’s decision-making as well as the most recent military developments on the ground.  In the process, we will examine how Ukrainian journalists are reporting on the war from the frontlines. The discussion will involve audience participation.

Brandon K. Gauthier completed his doctorate in Modern History at Fordham University in New York City in 2016. He is an Adjunct Professor of History for Fordham University and the Director of Global Education at The Derryfield School. He speaks passionately, and loudly. He lives with his wife and two daughters in New Hampshire. BEFORE EVIL is his first book.
