SUNY Cortland’s Clark Center for International Education will shed light on the implications of this year’s Winter Olympic Games by leading a panel discussion Monday, Feb. 10, on Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
“Putin’s Games: Sport, Society, Politics and Economy” takes place at 3 p.m. in the Corey Union Fireplace Lounge. The event is free and open to the public.

The scholars also will discuss the history of the Winter Olympic Games and China’s role in them.
