Ukraine in transformation. People and state

The course is an introduction to crucial aspects of the history, culture, society, economy, and politics of contemporary Ukraine, as well as their international reception. Thus, it is a problem-  rather than disciplinary-oriented.

The course has a unique form, designed to provide (multiple) Ukrainian and international perspectives on the aforementioned issues. Except for elements of lecture and seminar it includes meetings (mostly remote) with Ukrainian artists and scholars, students’ presentations, preferably prepared in tandems. Due to the course’s character, Ukrainian students are heartily welcomed. Щиро запрошуємо студентів з України! 

The ongoing war in Ukraine may influence the content of the course.
