'FROM GORBY TO CORBY: THE CLASH OF NEW WORLD ORDERS'

The School of Politics and International Relations is delighted to invite you to an event to celebrate Professor Richard Sakwa's 30 years at the University of Kent.

After periods working at the University of Essex and then the University of California, Santa Cruz, Richard joined the School on 1 September 1987. Since then, in numerous books, journal articles, chapters and edited works, he has written about the fall of the Soviet Union, the challenges facing post-communist Russia, the nature of the 1989 anti-revolutions, the turbulence in Europe, and developments in global politics. His latest book is Russia against the Rest: The Crisis of Post-Cold War Order (Cambridge University Press, due out in autumn 2017).

Richard will be reflecting on, and trying to make sense of, the last 30 years of Russian, European and global politics, and his time at Kent in the last three decades, in a lecture titled 'From Gorby to Corby: The Clash of New World Orders'.

The lecture will be on Wednesday 20 September 2017 in Sibson Lecture Theatre 3, commencing at 17.00. There will be opportunity for some discussion afterwards, followed by a drinks reception held in Sibson Atrium from 18.45 until 20.00
