Taking Ukrainian media as a point of departure, Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern will explore various ways in which Ukrainians perceived themselves as a people, the terrors of war, the unlikely invader, and Ukraine as a nation-state in a broad socio-political context. We will discuss verbal, visual, and auditory primary sources.
Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern is the Crown Family Professor of Jewish Studies and Professor of Jewish History in the Department of History at Northwestern University. He has published more than a hundred articles and six books in eastern European and Ukrainian Jewish history. He has been a visiting professor in Ukraine, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, and Poland. Beyond his scholarship, Petrovsky-Shtern is also an artist.
