UKRN S-129 Society, Culture, and Politics in Modern Ukraine

7-week session | CRN 33174

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.
