Dear Colleagues,

HURI has such a list (that is how we are dealing with the media requests since December), and some people on our list, including myself, are also on the list of experts put together by the people at the  UCCA. We are currently adding new names to our list and will be happy to provide it to the AAUS.

Vitaly, many thanks for taking initiative to compile a comprehensive list of experts.

Best wishes,
Serhii

Yes, such an effort is overdue. A packet to the media coming from HURI would be most effective, or perhaps jointly with AAUS and CIUS?


Motria Poshyvanyk Cahill (prof. at UJC School of Public Health & Environ. Scientist, US Environ. Protection Agency) maintains a blog of current articles by experts/scholars on Ukraine that could serve as a basis for the effort.   I've copied her on this email.

As you all know, the North American media are constantly looking for
Ukraine experts to interview. Because so few genuine Ukraine experts are
known to them, media outlets either go to bogus experts or to the same
handful of genuine experts.

I have a modest proposal to make to the AAUS, HURI, and CIUS. Why don't
you all get together and compile a simple press packet with names of
experts, areas of expertise, and contact info. Then e-mail it to all of
us, to various listserves, and to all possible journalists. If the packet
has these three institutions' imprimatur, it will be regarded with respect
by the media.

This has to be done quickly, but, fortunately, compiling such a packet in
the form of a simple PDF can be done in a few hours. And remember:
everyone who studies Ukraine--even if it's culture, literature, or
history--knows infinitely more about Ukraine than the bogus experts. So no
need to be modest. Help spread real knowledge about Ukraine. Dare I say
it's our obligation as scholars?
