Your Language My Ear 2021 Postponed
Due to the unprovoked and criminal invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, the Your Language My Ear symposium that was planned for the 2021-2022 academic year has been postponed. Please check back for updates on plans to convene the symposium at a later date.
Please also note: In connection with the tragic events in Ukraine, the University of Pennsylvania Department of Russian and East European Studies issued the following statement in early March, 2022:
The Department of Russian and East European Studies at the University of Pennsylvania condemns in the strongest possible terms the unprovoked, needless, and cruel attack by the Russian Federation, with support from the state of Belarus, on Ukraine. This unjust war is causing untold suffering and civilian death. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and with all people of the region, of all ethnicities and nationalities, who are defending Ukraine’s population, aiding victims and refugees, and resisting and protesting the Russian Federation’s criminal aggression. We offer support to our students from the region who are suffering along with their homelands. This war must stop, and we call on all concerned people to do everything in their power to achieve that end.
