Professor Magocsi, scholar and a major force behind the modern Carpatho-Rusyn revival, will discuss present-day instability in Eastern Europe made worse by the interest of Putin’s Russia and Orban’s Hungary in Ukraine’s Transcarpathian region (historic Subcarpathian Oblast), territory of former Czechoslovakia until 1939. He will also introduce his latest book With Their Backs to the Mountains: A History of the Carpathian Rus’ and Carpatho-Rusyns.

Paul Robert Magocsi, PhD. holds degrees from Princeton University (Ph.D. 1972) and Harvard University (Society of Fellows 1976). Since 1980 he is a professor history and political science at the University of Toronto, where he also holds the professorial chair of Ukrainian Studies. He has published 30 books including The Shaping of a National Identity: Subcarpathian Rus', 1848-1948 (1978); Galicia: A Historical Survey and Bibliographic Guide (1983); Historical Atlas of East Central/Central Europe (1993/2002); The Roots of Ukrainian Nationalism (2002); and Ukraine: An Illustrated History (2007). He is also co-editor and main author of the Encyclopedia of Rusyn History and Culture (University of Toronto Press (2002).
