Levin Professor of History and an award-winning author who has written extensively about Ukraine and Russia; Arne Westad, Elihu Professor of History and Global Affairs whose past research focused on the history of the Cold War and China-Russia relations; and Nellie Petlick, a Jackson graduate student who spent four years in Ukraine first as a Peace Corps Volunteer and later on the staff of EducationUSA.
