Speaker information

Gennady Eistrakh, Clinical Associate Professor, Dept of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Faculty of Arts & Science, New York University, Gennady Eistrakh specialises in Jewish intellectual history in the 19th and 20th centuries with an accent on Yiddish literary milieus, publishing and civil-society organization.

Bohdan Zynoviy Mykhailovych Khmelnitsky (c. 1595 1657) was a hetman of the Zaporozhian Cossack Hetmanate of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth (now part of Ukraine). He led an uprising against the Commonwealth and its magnates (1648–1654) which resulted in the creation of a Cossack state. In 1654, he concluded the Treaty of Pereyaslav with the Tsardom of Russia, which led to the eventual loss of independence to the Russian Empire.
