Sixth Annual Danyliw Research Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine

The Chair of Ukrainian Studies, with the support of the Wolodymyr George
Danyliw Foundation, will be holding its Sixth Annual Danyliw Research
Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine at the University of Ottawa on 28-30
October 2009. The Seminar will feature research papers, touching on
Ukraine, from the disciplines of political science, history,
anthropology (ethnology), sociology, economics, religious studies,
demography, geography, literature, cinema, folklore and other fields of
social science and humanities. Papers with a theoretical and comparative
focus are particularly solicited. 
The Seminar is open to all social science and humanities research
topics, including topics in history and literature, on topics that
include Ukraine-Russia relations, Ukraine and the European Union,
electoral politics, political regime and practices, constitutional

In addition, two of its sections will feature special themes:
The first will pursue the Seminar’s ongoing exploration of the politics
of memory, with papers touching on the Famine (Holodomor), the Holocaust
(Shoah), the purges, deportations, forced labor and other cases of mass
violence, committed on the territory of what is today Ukraine, in the
1930s, during World War II and the immediate post-War period, involving,
among others, the NKVD, German military and paramilitary forces, the
Soviet Army, Soviet partisans, the OUN, the UPA, and the Polish Home
Army, police, and military forces. We are inviting paper proposals based
on current research on social and political history for this period
and/or on an analysis of contemporary political issues raised by the
memorialization of these events, and are expanding the scope of social
science and historical research to the representation of memory in
literature, cinema, and the arts more generally. 
The second theme will continue our presentation of new research on the
political economy of Ukraine, particularly as it relates to the informal
economy and informal politics, trans-border exchange and other
practices, internal and international migration, economic “clans”,
corruption, oil and gas politics, the impact of global economic factors,
the rule of law, rural political economy and related topics.
