Between 17th century futurism and avant-garde Baroque, subversive anti-imperial poetry and pioneering feminist modernism, multilingual writing and poetics of dissent and solidarity, Ukrainian literature comprises centuries of immensely rich cultural heritage. In his lecture, Tokarsky will explore this heritage by looking at tradition and innovation, identity and diversity, as well as the relationship between culture and politics, reflecting both on the origins of Ukrainian literature and on its meaning and significance today. On 11 May 2022, 21:00 CEST, EUTIM scholar Bohdan Tokarsky discusses these issues in an online lecture entitled “The ABC of Ukrainian Literature: Resilience, Diversity, Tradition.”
