Ihor Zhuk is the director of the Leopolis Project and the curator of the Collection of Visual Materials at Ukrainian Catholic University. He received his Kandydat nauk degree in art history in 1989 from the Moscow School of Industrial and Applied Art. A longtime colleague of HURI, Zhuk will return to the Institute for four months (February-May 2007) to conduct further work on the Leopolis Project. During his stay at Harvard, Zhuk will draw on material housed at Harvard to assemble blocks of textual and visual data, and compile new e-documents for this complex hypertext and visual resource of valuable art objects and historically significant architecture found in Ukraine and dating from the Neolithic period to the present. Zhuk's work at Harvard will result in a thoroughly elaborated art history database of over 2500 objects to be used as a teaching and research tool by mid-2007.
