Ukraine Seminar

23 May 2022

St Mary's University College and Stranmillis University College jointly hosted a seminar on 17 May with academics and students from one of our partner universities in Ukraine, Lesya Ukrainka University, Lutsk.

Chaired by Dr Patricia Eaton and Dr Gerard McCann, the conversation involved powerful presentations by Professor Valentyna Ushchyna and Professor Olexandr Belyakov, Faculty of Philology, Lutsk. They looked at how university teaching and learning had been affected by the invasion. The event also involved heart-felt reflections by three students from Lutsk and one refugee in Munich, on how the war has changed their lives.

The open discussion at the end focused on supporting partners during this conflict, rebuilding life post-war in Ukraine and the role that universities can play in this process.
