March 17, 2022

Coastal Carolina University faculty members – representing disciplines ranging from politics to philosophy to national security studies – will hold a panel discussion, titled “The Ethics and Politics of the Ukraine Invasion.” The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held Tuesday, March 22, at 4:30 p.m. in Johnson Auditorium (room 116), located in the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration Building.

The panel discussion is part of the Ethics and Current Events Series, sponsored by CCU’s Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values.

Panelists include Nataliya Alekseyenko, lecturer of Russian, Department of Language and Intercultural Studies; Mariam Dekanozishvili, associate professor, Department of Political Science; Joseph Fitsanakis, professor, Department of Intelligence and Security Studies; Christopher Gunn, associate professor, Department of History; and Jonathan Trerise, associate professor, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies.

Julinna Oxley, professor of philosophy and director of the Jackson Center, said the event will provide global context of the crisis and information on ways individuals and organizations can support humanitarian efforts.

“The invasion of Ukraine is historic and has widespread effects, even for us here in the United States,” said Oxley. “The goal of this panel discussion is to foster understanding of the situation in Ukraine, articulate the historical events that led up to it, and consider the role that the United States might play going forward. We will also provide information about humanitarian and relief work and options for how people can donate and get involved.”
