Please join the Humanities Council and the Department of Music for a conversation among scholars, activists, and journalists.
The connections among President Donald Trump, his campaign advisers, the Russian government under Vladimir Putin, and Russian business elites are the subject of intense, partisan scrutiny in the US Congress and US media. Panelists will survey what is and is not known about Trump and Russia, exploring the DNC hacking scandal, Trump’s time in Russia in 2013, kompromat, and the implications for the presidency as well as international relations.
