Sixth Annual Danyliw Research Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine
Chair of Ukrainian Studies, University of Ottawa, 28-30 October 2010
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.
A special section 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.
Scholars and doctoral students are invited to submit a 1000 word paper
proposal and a 250 word biographical statement, by email attachment, to
Dominique Arel, Chair of Ukrainian Studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org AND
email@example.com. Please also include your full coordinates (institutional
affiliation, preferred postal address, email, phone) and indicate your
latest publication (or, in the case of doctoral applicants, the year when
you entered a doctoral program, the [provisional] title of your dissertation
and year of expected completion).
The proposal deadline is 15 June 2010. To be eligible, papers must not have
been accepted for publication by the time of the Seminar. The Chair will
cover the expenses of participants, including discussants, to the Seminar.
An international selection committee will review the proposals and notify
applicants shortly after the deadline.
The aim of the Seminar is to provide a unique forum for researchers from
Canada, Ukraine, the United States, Europe and elsewhere to engage in
fruitful inter-disciplinary dialogue, disseminate cutting-edge research
papers on the Chair web site, encourage publications in various outlets, and
stimulate collaborative research projects. Papers of the first four Annual
Danyliw Research Seminars in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies can be
downloaded at www.ukrainianstudies.uottawa.ca
. The Seminar adopts the format of
a Workshop, where each presentation is followed by group discussion, and is
open to the public.
The Seminar is made possible by the commitment of the Wolodymyr George
Danyliw Foundation to the pursuit of excellence in the study of contemporary
