How, in Ukraine, are different cultural, national, and social identities performed and negotiated? How did these identities take shape historically? Do the current events in Ukraine facilitate the construction of new social identities? And what role do media (news & social) play in Ukrainian identity formation processes? These are the core questions, around which the lectures and the seminar will evolve.
The entrance to all the events is free of charge.
