WILL Lunch & Learn


From: Feb 14, 2018 12:00 pm
To: Feb 14, 2018 01:00 pm
 
The WILL Lunch & Learn program will be "Who’s in Control? Russian Federalism and Putinism" by Allison Evans. With all of the focus on Russia’s foreign policy and claims that President Putin has total control over Russian politics spreading through the Western media, it is hard to find thoughtful and nuanced information on the country. This talk will focus on Russia’s federal system, the reasons for Putin’s recentralization reforms, and the inherent limits to Putin’s power.

Allison D. Evans is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Western New Mexico University, where she has been teaching since 2014. She received her PhD in political science from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Evans specializes in comparative politics with a focus on Russian politics and comparative post-communist transitions. She is presently completing a book manuscript on sub-national variation in protest and local governance. Her work has also appeared as refereed articles in such journals as Post-Soviet Affairs and Studies in Comparative International Development.

These programs will be held at WNMU, in the ABC room of Global Resource Center, located at 12th and Kentucky. They are free and open to the public. Go to http://www.will-learning.com/#/lunchlearn or call 575-538-6835 for more information.

Invited: Everyone
