Ukrainian scholar to discuss economic impacts of war
Yuliia Yehorova, associate professor of economics and business at Kharkiv National University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, will discuss the impact of the war in Ukraine on the country’s economy as the inaugural lecturer in the Tulane Freeman Ukrainian Speaker Series (TFUSS).
The virtual presentation, “Ukraine’s Economy During the Military Conflict: Assessing Damage and Needs for Recovery,” will take place on Thursday, Dec. 1, at noon. To register, visit https://tulane.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_yUVFQEyIRbe3IojkQRP_jA.
Tulane University’s A. B. Freeman School of Business announced the establishment of the speaker series in September to promote the research and vision of Ukrainian scholars as the country grapples with the effects of the Russian invasion. A committee of Freeman School faculty members reviewed 21 applications and awarded grants to 10 Ukrainian scholars addressing topics related to sustaining and rebuilding the country and its culture.
“We are proud to support our colleagues and peers in Ukraine as they struggle with the ongoing effects of this devastating conflict,” said Paulo Goes, dean of the Freeman School. “The knowledge and expertise of Ukraine’s academic community is essential to the nation’s rebuilding process, and these presentations will provide valuable insights relating to a host of critical topics.”
The Freeman School awarded $10,000 in grants for the first round of TFUSS presentations, which will take place between December 2022 and March 2023. Additional funding is currently being sought to support additional rounds of the series. For information, please contact Lisa Pagniucci at firstname.lastname@example.org.
