Deadline: December 15, 2020

The Ukrainian Studies Organization at Indiana University will be holding a second Ukrainian Studies Conference (Taras Shevchenko Conference) which will take place at Indiana University, March 19-20, 2021. Taking into consideration the current uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will announce later if the conference will be online or on campus (Bloomington, IU).

Our conference aims to bring scholars from all disciplines to explore the ways in which Ukrainian studies is presented and shaped in the current political and cultural contexts. In addition to this broad range of topics, we welcome talks and presentations that focus on the exploration of trauma. The events of 2014 ask for the discussion of traumatic experiences triggered by war, dislocation, re-integration into society after military actions, social isolation, sense of lostness, etc. The range of trauma narratives is open (Chornobyl, WWII, deportations, the Holodomor, collectivization, etc.).
