Initiated in 2003, the Annual Stasiuk Lecture in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies at the University of Cambridge explores the internal dynamics and international implications of events in today’s Ukraine and features the foremost experts in the fields of Ukrainian politics, history, and society. It is organised by Cambridge Ukrainian Studies, an academic centre in the Department of Slavonic Studies, University of Cambridge.

The Fourteenth Annual Stasiuk Lecture, which will be held on Friday, 26 February 2016, will be delivered by journalist Nataliya Gumenyuk, Director of the Hromadske Network. The title of her presentation is ’Media in a Time of Revolution and Information Warfare: Lessons from the Ukrainain-Russian Conflict’.

Nataliya Gumenyuk is an international prize-winning journalist and co-founder of Hromadske TV, an independent online media outlet that is invigorating Ukrainian journalism and public-interest journalism in Europe today. Hromadske was launched in 2013 when the most dramatic and tumultous events in Ukraine’s recent history began to engulf the country. Free of ties to Ukrainian business or the Ukrainian government, Hromadske’s candid and uncompromising on-the-ground reporting in Ukrainian, Russian and English during the Maidan Revolution, the Crimean Annexation and the ongoing undeclared Ukrainian-Russian War has made it required viewing for Ukrainians and Ukraine-watchers around the world.

Nataliya Gumenyuk is a graduate of the Institute of Journalism, Kyiv State Taras Shevchenko University. Her work as former Head of International News at INTER during the Russian-Georgian War led to an Emmy nomination from the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. As an international journalist she has covered events in over 50 countries. From 2011 she covered the events of the Arab Spring for various Ukrainian and world media outlets. Her experiences in the midst of revolution and uprising formed the basis of her 2015 book Maidan Tahrir: In Search of a Lost Revolution.
