Call for papers

The conference “Ukraine and the World: Culture, Politics, Society” will provide a platform to reflect on the current state of affairs in Ukraine, including the ongoing crisis in the East of the country, the Ukrainian government’s reform action, and the various responses that Ukrainian society and Ukrainian culture have given to the challenges of the post-Euromaidan era. In order to grasp both the specificities of Ukraine in its present and historical dimension and its place in the international arena, we invite prospective participants to reflect on how Ukraine has imagined and shaped its role in the world and how foreign actors have perceived Ukraine and its international outlook both in the past and in the present day.

Proposed topics, spanning political science, sociology, linguistics, and cultural and literary studies, history and other relevant disciplines, should pertain to one or more of the following research areas: Ukraine and Europe, Ukraine in the global(ised) world, Ukraine and multiculturalism, Ukrainian identities, migration from/in Ukraine.
