Course Description

Ukraine and Russia have been profoundly marked by the imperial experience, which has involved state expansion, cultural appropriation and assimilation. For three centuries leading cultural and political figures in Russia expressed attitudes toward Ukraine that today contribute to a “colonizing” mentality. This course looks at classic expressions of the imperial attitude, how it was challenged in Ukraine, and how it has resurfaced in the present war. Readings from historians are supplemented with source materials from creative literature, art, film, political propaganda and journalism.
