UKRN S-129 Society, Culture, and Politics in Modern Ukraine
This is the history of modern Ukraine through the study of its society, culture, and politics since the late eighteenth century. Ukraine is studied as a territorial concept encompassing different historical experiences of major communities such as Ukrainians, Poles, Jews, and Russians who have lived for centuries on the territory of present-day Ukraine. Students learn how Ukrainians have become the dominant national project in Ukraine during the last two hundred years. The ongoing crisis in Eastern Ukraine and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is placed in historical, cultural, and geopolitical contexts.
