Swiss-American Catherine Guisan is Assistant Visiting Professor at the Political Science Department at the University of Minnesota. She is the author of two books on European integration. She has taught at European University in Saint Petersburg on a Fulbright fellowship in 2013 and returned to Russia for invited lectures in Saint Petersburg and Moscow universities in March 2015. She is currently based in Den Haag.
In her English-language lecture, Catherine Guisan will introduce the audience to the fourty years long efforts by Soviet citizens to face up to and recover from Stalinist totalitarianism, and to contemporary Russians who are working hard to transform their country toward more respect for human rights and active citizenship against a background of growing authoritarianism. Discussion will follow.
