  1. Course outline 1 item
    1. The aim of this course is to study the history, culture, politics and political economy of Europe's second-largest country: Ukraine. The course starts with the origins of Ukraine, explores the various attempts at state-building, traces the country's changing borders during the twentieth century and covers events in post-Communist Ukraine up to the present day. Particular attention will be paid to the importance of Ukraine's location between Russia and the West and to the complex historical interrelationship between Ukraine and Russia. The course will explore the themes of nationalism, ethnicity, identity and language in Ukraine. There is no language requirement, but an expanded bibliography will be available to students with knowledge of Ukrainian and/or Russian.
