One of the largest yet least understood nations in Europe, Ukraine has recently undergone
two revolutions and is currently in a military conflict with its neighbor, Russia. This course
encompasses different aspects of Ukraine’s modern history, geography, and cultural
life, focusing on its geopolitical significance. The design of the course (discussions,
presentations, an online conference with Ukrainian researchers) aims to create
opportunities to develop/strengthen understanding of the geopolitical situation in this part
of Eastern Europe.
