Professor Viktoriya Sereda (Ukrainian Catholic University) presented a lecture Transformations of National Identity and Historical Memory in Ukraine since the Euromaidan* on Monday, November 14 at 7:00 pm at the University of Winnipeg, Room 2B23, Bryce Hall.

 

In her talk, she discussed recent changes in the self-perception of Ukrainian society. Based on qualitative and quantitative data collected in 2013-2016, her research challenges the image of Ukraine as a country deeply polarized, politically and culturally, along the East-West divide. Discussing identities, she addressed the issue of historical memory and the alleged irreconcilable split between its Soviet and nationalist versions. Sereda teaches sociology at the Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv, Ukraine.

 

* This lecture was sponsored by UWinnipeg’s Department of History, the Faculty of Arts together with the Canadian Ukrainian Congress-Manitoba Provincial Council.
