Zvi Gitelman (Petro Jacyk Distinguished Research Fellow in Ukrainian Studies, Fall 2010) is Professor of Political Science and the Preston R. Tisch Professor of Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan, where he has been on the faculty since 1968. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University. Gitelman’s illustrious academic career includes a number of honors: Shapiro Senior Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Fellow at the Kennan Institute, Woodrow Wilson Center for International Affairs, and election to the School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton University. While at Harvard, Gitelman will pursue the research topic “Rethinking Collaboration: Jews and Ukrainians in World War II.” He proposes to reexamine the complex concept of collaboration by analyzing motivation, intention, and behavior. Gitelman will compare older and émigré historiography to the historiography emerging in independent Ukraine, and analyze how these fit into different conceptions of Ukrainian nationhood, statehood, and the place of Jews in each. He was coeditor of Revolution, Repression and Revival: The Soviet Jewish Experience (2007) and coeditor of and contributor to Religion or Ethnicity? The Evolution of Jewish Identities (2009).
