Time to rethink Russian cultural imperialism - with Vitaly Chernetsky

April 12, 2024
Do we have concepts and ideas to think critically about Russian cultural imperialism?

Why are the existing concepts not sufficient? Are “Russian studies” still dominating the Western academia’s look at Eastern Europe? Why is it time to rethink Russian cultural imperialism and decolonize the “Slavic” or “Eurasian” studies?

  • The guest of the Explaining Ukraine podcast is Vitaly Chernetsky, Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Kansas, and the current President of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES).
  • Host: Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher, chief editor of UkraineWorld and president of PEN Ukraine
