December 9, 2021

How can we look at Ukrainian history in new ways? How can we view it from a multi-national, international or global perspective? Is the “borderland” metaphor productive? How can we go beyond “imperial” or “national” approaches to history? What can Ukrainian history teach us about the present? What new approaches it can suggest to the global history? UkraineWorld’s chief editor Volodymyr Yermolenko talks with Katherine Younger, historian of Central and Eastern Europe, research director of the “Ukraine in the European Dialogue” programme at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) in Vienna.
