Call for Submissions

The topic of the 5th issue is Cross-Cultural Connections and Displacement in Ukraine and Beyond

The Ukrainian historical and cultural experience has historically been affected by the meeting of two civilizations: the East and the West, which has resulted in the constant displacement and migration of Ukrainians themselves, and of other peoples. This question is especially current today, with new 21st century challenges facing Ukraine, including the question of the Crimean Tatars and the question of internally displaced persons as a result of Crimea’s annexation by Russia, and the latter’s commencement of war in Eastern Ukraine. These questions, including many others have been affected by 20th century events (the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917–1921 and the two World Wars) that still await further research in the context of the above-mentioned cross-cultural connections and displacement. In the present issue, we propose to address and investigate these processes from a multidisciplinary perspective. Suggested research topics may include but are not limited to: 1) identity formation and transformation as a result of displacement and cross-cultural interaction, 2) new archival information (memoirs, correspondence, biographies, other documents), 3) cross-cultural literary, linguistic, philosophical and religious interaction, 4) questions related to Ukrainian diasporas, 5) historical perspectives on the issue.
