Why Do Russia and the US Need Each Other?: Foreign Policy and National Identity

Dec. 12, 2018, 11:00am-12:00pm (RSVP requested)
5th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC

Join the Wilson Center for a talk with Victoria Zhuravleva on foreign policy and national identity in Russia and the U.S. Zhuravleva will discuss how anti-Americanism in Russia and anti-Russian sentiments in the US are used in domestic political games, as well as how foreign policy becomes a stage for defining national identity in opposition to images of the “other,” a pattern spanning the US-Russia relationship for over a century. RSVP is requested.


Victoria Zhuravleva, professor of history and international relations, chair of the department of American studies, Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow
