Context is a global community of learners and experts based on mutual respect, dialogue, and a love of learning. We are heartbroken to watch the global events of the past few weeks unfold; we condemn the senseless violence perpetrated by Russia in the Ukraine.
At this time, the safety and security of our experts is our top priority. Context is a home and source of income for many thoughtful scholars around the world, including in eastern Europe.
We have thus made the decision not to cancel any events presented on subjects pertaining to Russian history or culture. In times of crisis, especially, we believe fostering cross-cultural understanding is of utmost importance.
