19TH ANNUAL AMERICAN STUDIES INSTITUTE “U.S. ELECTIONS: MYTHS AND FACTS”

On May 16-18, 2019, the 19th Annual American Studies Institute “Elections in the United States: Myths and Facts” was held at the Faculty of International Relations of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. This academic event was organized in cooperation with the NGO “Lviv Education Initiative” and was held with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.

This initiative is aimed at improving the teaching of American Studies disciplines and is intended to promote the professionalization of American Studies in our country.  This year 40 participants representing 25 different Ukrainian academic institutions and 15 Ukrainian cities participated in the event. This is an important step towards the further consolidation of the American Studies academic community within Ukraine. As our participants mentioned in their feedback to the event, the Institute enriched their expertise in the field of American Studies, especially in American history and elections.

Key speakers: Assoc. Prof. of History at the University of  Notre Dame Darren Dochuk and international communications consultant and media relations specialist Mark Dillen.
