(Greater Washington DC Metro Area)
Bill Gleason, coordinator of Eurasian studies, U.S. Department of State, will present "Russia and Ukraine: The Search for Identity in the 21st Century."

In his talk, Gleason will discuss how they are doing in their search for a new identity and what it means for the United States.
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m.
Light refreshments will be served.
The 2015 Fall Speaker Series is a joint effort of the Metropolitan Institute (MI) and the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA).
