Please tell your friends in Harvard, New York and Cincinnati or near about this unique opportunity to come and hang out!

I am speaking in the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute about the language and media in today’s Ukraine on Friday, 14 October 2011, 1 pm. See link for details.

I will discuss: why the media speak the language they speak? Why did Ukrainian literature take off in Ukraine, and Russian did not?

Next stop Columbia University, NY (19 October), and Miami University, Ohio (21 October!

In Columbia, I will explore the wonderful and murky world of Ukrainian slang. What is a Ukrainian “norm” and why are we so afraid to break the rules?

And in Ohio – how media and art interact, why an artist in Ukraine must have a political opinion, and whether it is healthy.

Cheesy jokes, embarrassing examples, insights and paradoxical solutions on me! Bring your own pop-corn.

Please repost if you have friends who might be interested.
