In this special episode, Katie talks with two prominent UT professors, Drs. Mary Neuburger and Oksana Lutsyshyna, and former students of theirs who together undertook a phenomenal investigative project in spring 2019 to examine and closely follow Ukrainian youth political engagement during the presidential election in which Volodymyr Zelensky ultimately won, beating incumbent Petro Poroshenko. The team discusses the fascinating process by which they began their research, connected with Ukrainian students via Skype (not Zoom!), and eventually traveled to Ukraine itself. The lasting relationships and connections they made during that memorable month abroad in early summer 2019 inform their thinking and processing of the War in Ukraine today.
