Ep. № 46 - What Makes Ukrainian History Interesting to the World

May 31, 2021

Tune in for our conversation with Serhii Plokhy, a famous Ukrainian historian and director of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University. We talk about Ukraine’s special experience as a culture of both dialogue and conflict between settled cultures and nomadic cultures; between Christianity, Judaism and Islam; between various forms of Christianity; between East and West, North and South; and between republican and imperial forms of politics. We also focus on Ukraine in the 20th century (World War II, totalitarianisms) and after its 1991 independence.
