WBOI Presents

In this week's episode of WBOI Presents, we’ll feature a panel discussion recorded at IPFW on Wednesday, September 16th that looks at the European refugee crisis.  

Associate Professor of History Ann Livschiz, and associate professor of political science James Toole, will talk about the background of this crisis, global responses and implications, and what we can learn from history.

In late August, 89.1 WBOI was honored to play host to NPR correspondent Kelly McEvers, who gave a lecture at the Manchester University College of Pharmacy.

McEvers was a foreign correspondent for many years, reporting from the likes of Cambodia, Indonesia, and most recently, the Middle East. After being stationed in Iraq, she was sent to cover the Arab Spring, as citizens across the region attempted to topple dictators who had long held power in their respective countries.

As tensions continue to rise in Ukraine, the world is now turning its attention to the country’s southern region.

But why is the Crimean Peninsula so interesting to Russian President Vladimir Putin? And where do other world powers fit into the equation?

On this edition of WBOI Presents, we’ll go beyond the headlines with a panel discussion examining the history of Crimea and the politics at play.
