Histories of Ukraine

HIST 282
Spring 2025
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: REES 200
Course Cluster and Certificates: Christianity Studies

Over the course of its history, Ukraine has been a site of multiple political projects and diverse historical experiences. As a concept that encompasses a specific territory, it has also been a space where multiple communities--Ukrainians, Russians, Jews, and Poles--have histories. This course will look at how these histories have been shaped by and alongside one another, and the kind of political programs, obstacles, and possibilities that have emerged through these encounters. It will ask why Ukraine and its history have been the subject of so much confusion and controversy, and examine the concepts (nation, state, people, culture) that transform a space into a place, a land into a home.
