Meinem Kalender hinzufügen

The current lecture series is aimed at revealing some of the aspects that pre-defined and framed the current occasions. On the one hand, the lectures will present the development of Ukrainian identity, nation and sovereignty in different historical context and under various, often contradicting factors. On the other hand, important part of the series is to show how Russia attempted to influence the country from several angles, often using media, culture and religion as tools of spreading narratives harmful for Ukrainian nation-building.

In the wake of the war of aggression waged by the Russian Federation in Ukraine, historical and cultural categories pertaining to the Russo-Ukrainian dyad have been subject to an intense process of political appropriation. In this talk Dr. Puleri will discuss about the long-term process of Ukrainian nation-building in post-Soviet times as experienced from below, highlighting the persistence of contact zones and identity patterns that reveal the everchanging nature of the national paradigm.

Marco Puleri is Senior Assistant Professor and Deputy Director of the MA Programme in East European and Eurasian Studies at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Bologna. His research interests include contemporary Russian and Ukrainian sociocultural developments and nation-building in the post-Soviet area.
