Ukraine-Related Courses at Harvard, 2018-2019

Students reading Krytyka

Interested in Ukrainian literature? How about the culture of Medieval Rus'? This academic year, Harvard is offering a number of courses that focus on Ukraine.

Students interested in traveling to Ukraine or reading its literature in the original can prepare by taking Dr. Volodymyr Dibrova's language class. Haven't satisfied your language requirement yet? Why not take Ukrainian and stand out from your peers taking Russian or Romance languages?

Students should note that Prof. Serhii Plokhii is on sabbatical, so his history courses on Ukraine will not be on offer this year. We are, however, running the Seminar in Ukrainian Studies, which will span a range of disciplines and topics. As always, check the Harvard Course Catalog for updated information. See the course offerings.

Announcing HURI's 2018-2019 Research Fellows

Fall Harvard Feature

HURI is pleased to announce its research fellows for the 2018-2019 academic year.

HURI’s fellowship program offers funding for research in Ukrainian studies at all stages of an academic career. Our fellows conduct research in residence at HURI while making use of the extensive resources at Harvard University, participating in seminars, and connecting with other scholars in the field.

This year, HURI welcomes nine fellows; three in the fall and six in the spring semester. These scholars will examine different aspects of Ukraine, including its history, politics, nationalities, interethnic relations, identities, and early literature. As specialists of several different fields, their perspectives will contribute greatly to our weekly Seminar in Ukrainian Studies. We look forward to learning from them! Read about the fellows.
