New York University’s Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia will host “The Great Triangular Game: Russia, China, and the USA, Past and Present,” a panel discussion, on Wed., Oct. 21, 3-5 p.m. at 19 University Place, 2nd Fl. (betw. 8th St. and Waverly Pl.).
As Russia’s tensions with countries to its west have strained, the country has drawn on historical precedent to pivot to the east. At the same time, analysts say, China has been a larger and larger presence in Russian geopolitical and economic thought. To what extent and in what ways is China receptive? What are the foundations of the relationship, and what is that relationship when viewed in wider global perspective? A panel of experts from Beijing, New York, and St. Petersburg will weigh in during this panel discussion.
• Tim Naftali, associate clinical professor of history and public service at NYU and co-director of NYU’s Center for the United States and the Cold War
• Li Xing, director of the Center for Eurasian Studies, professor of international relations, and a member of the University’s Academic Degree Evaluation Committee at Beijing Normal University
• Dmitry Savkin, director for internationalization and associate professor at the School of Public Policy at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration and a member of HABITAT UNI
The session will be moderated by Yanni Kotsonis, director of the Jordan Center and a professor of history and Russian and Slavic Studies at NYU.
The event is free and open to the public. An RSVP is required by calling 212.992.6575 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Subway Lines: N, R (8th St.), 6 (Astor Pl.).
This panel is co-sponsored by the NYU Program in International Relations and the NYU Department of East Asian Studies.
The NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia undertakes to make Russia intrinsic to all aspects of scholarly investigation: from politics to literature, economics to anthropology, history to visual culture. Joining the ranks of US and western universities with traditions of inquiry and expertise on matters Russian and Soviet, the Center is distinguished by its particular mission of situating Russia in a global context. We aim both to help educate Russia specialists on the interconnectedness of Russia with the world and to remind other fields of Russia’s ubiquity. While recognizing that any country is best understood as part of a global economy, culture, and politics, the Center works to ensure that Russia’s dramatic and enduring influence is an integral part of every conversation.
