In 2016-2017, the United States and Ukraine are celebrating 25 years of diplomatic and cultural relations with one another. On January 11, English Club at America House will mark this major milestone with a special opportunity for English speakers to express their ideas for future cultural exchange between these two great countries.
We will talk about how Americans and Ukrainians perceive and understand one another and design our own cultural exchange programs. Bring your English skills, your creativity, and a positive attitude for what is sure to be a fun, exciting, and interesting evening.
Your host for the event will be Fulbright student grantee, Benjamin Cohen, who has been in Ukraine since September 2016 studying politics and religion.
See you then! Don’t forget your passport or drivers license.
Come and chat with our friend Alexandra. She is from West Hartford, Connecticut (which is between Boston and New York). Alexandra is about to go into her last year of college at University of Glasgow, in Scotland.
Joined by a longstanding commitment to research on human rights, Dr. Jessica Zychowicz and Yevgenia Belorusets will present new projects that bring together authors, artists, professors, and students to create deeper understanding of increasingly vulnerable populations in Ukraine, including Roma communities and other women displaced by the war.
