The first lecture in our virtual lecture series Discover Ukraine: History, Culture and its People, will take place on 13 April (15:00 Chile; 20:00 London; 21:00 Berlin; 22:00 Kyiv).
Our first speaker is Dr Fabian Baumann, the University of Chicago “Between Empires: Ukraine in the Nineteenth Century”
During the nineteenth century, the territory of Ukraine was split up between two empires, the Habsburg Monarchy and the Russian Empire. The lecture will cover the political history of the region in both empires, with a particular focus on the social and ethnic stratification of its population. Special attention will be given to the emergence of the Ukrainian national movement and to the question of why nineteenth-century intellectuals chose to identify as Ukrainians.
