It is time to start applying the concept of genocide with regard to what Russia has been doing to Ukrainians for the last 8 years

The ruined streets and hundreds of killed unarmed civilians – these are the realities in the Kyiv region, including Bucha and Irpen, liberated from the Russian troops. If we look at the events during the occupation of Kyiv’s suburbs by Russian soldiers as a separate episode, these are undoubtedly war crimes under international and Ukrainian law. However, if we consider this in the context of the “final solution of the Ukrainian issue” against the background of all Russia’s actions against Ukraine over the past 8 years, then now is the time to raise the question of the concept of genocide to assess what is happening in Ukraine. 

Conference “Eighteenth-Century Studies: Ukrainian and Global Perspectives” / UCU, 23-24 June 2021

This conference aims to consider a shift in attitudes towards the eighteenth century, re-assess the established narratives and concepts, and entwine eighteenth-century Ukraine into the broader East European and global context. It also aims to stimulate eighteenth-century studies and initiate a forum for scholars across a range of disciplines to meet regularly and to engage in discussions on a variety of topics related to the history and literature of Ukraine, Europe, and the wider world of the period.

Call for papers: Uses of the Past by Enterprises in Central-Eastern Europe (Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv, Ukraine October 23–24, 2020)

The Ukrainian Catholic University and the European Business History Association invite scholars and Ph.D. students of any relevant discipline to submit paper proposals in a broad range of topics related to the uses of the past by firms in Central-Eastern Europe (CEE). In the context of this workshop, we wish to approach the past as a resource, which is used or can be used by business organizations for their purposes in the present and the future. We understand history as performative interpretation, a tool that helps actors make sense of the past and present and build towards the future. We focus on uses of the past in CEE; however, case studies on other regions are also welcome in case they deepen our understanding of “uses of the past” by CEE enterprises.
