The Chair of Entangled History of Ukraine at the European University Viadrina hosts two online conversations about the perspectives of Ukrainian Studies. The events will take place via Zoom on 14 April and 21 April 2022 at 4pm (CEST).

The first session on 14 April 2022 is a roundtable discussion with Olesya Khromeychuk (Ukrainian Institute London), Marina Mogilner (University of Illinois Chicago), and Miloš Řezník (German Historical Institute Warsaw). It is moderated by Andrii Portnov (EUTIM, European University Viadrina). The discussion will address the following topics:

  • The responsibility of existing East European Studies in the context of the preparation and the outbreak of war.
  • The necessity, possibilities and obstacles for ‘de-colonizing’ terminology, geographic names, etc. we use when writing about Ukrainian history.
  • The role of Ukrainian Studies in re-thinking Russian, Polish, Jewish Studies.
  • What should be done (on both individual and institutional levels) to re-think and develop Ukrainian studies as a field of international academic research?
