Researchers from MacEwan University, the University of Alberta, the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy and the Ukrainian Catholic University will present nine- to 12-minute videos of their work that will be directly integrated with Twitter. It’s a state-of-the-art approach that Roman hopes will interest researchers as well as people in the community.
“We have had a lot of interest in the Edmonton community and invite everyone to participate,” says Roman.
Video will be live streamed from 8:30 to 11 a.m. MST at http://euromaidan-researchforum.ca. Anyone can provide feedback and ask questions in real time via Twitter by tweeting at @EuromaidanForum or by posting on the Facebook pageContemporary Ukraine Research Forum: The Case of Euro-Maidan.
All presentations and Twitter discussions will also be archived on the site so they can be accessed after the conference.
