Academic Conference: “The Assault on Culture in Ukraine: The Holodomor Years”

“The Assault on Culture in Ukraine: The Holodomor Years”

The Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC, at CIUS, University of Alberta) and the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute, Columbia University will host a conference, “The Assault on Culture in Ukraine: The Holodomor Years,” on October 19, 2023 at Columbia University in New York City.

Since the fall of the USSR, the Holodomor has been the subject of considerable research, yet connections between it and attacks on Ukrainian culture have received relatively little attention. This conference will consider the relationship between the Holodomor famine and the assault on the Ukrainian language, literature, art, theatre, education, religion, and traditions.

Conference participants will include: Mark Andryczyk, Leah Batstone, Olga Bertelsen, Nichloas Denysenko, Bohdan Kild, Olena Palko, Matthew Pauly, Yuri Shevchuk, Myroslav Shkandrij, Frank Sysyn, Serhy Yekelchyk.
