Tony Wood & Keith Gessen in Conversation at Word Up
January 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Vladimir Putin personifies his country in the eyes of the outside world, and dominates Western media coverage of it to an extraordinary extent. In Russia without Putin, Tony Wood argues that the overwhelming focus on the president and his personality means that we understand Russia less than we ever did before. Exploring the profound social, political, and economic changes the country has undergone since 1991, Wood challenges several of the standard assumptions of Western coverage. In conversation with Keith Gessen.
