On Thursday, September 16, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies was honored to welcome Myroslav Marynovych to deliver the 2021 Nanovic Forum Lecture. A native of Ukraine, Marynovych is a Gulag survivor, a human rights activist, and currently the vice-rector for university mission at the Ukrainian Catholic University.
In a lecture titled "Faith in Communist and Post-Communist Europe," Marynovych reflected on his own life and the experience of Ukraine as a window onto the broader experience of Eastern Europe under communism and after its demise. Clemens Sedmak, director of the Nanovic Institute and professor of social ethics, introduced and welcomed Marynovych to the University of Notre Dame.
The Institute has prepared an event brief that summarizes Marynovych’s lecture, and has made available a live recording for anyone who would like to watch the event.
