About the seminar series:

This series of talks is open to all University of Sheffield staff and the wider community. The goal is to raise awareness and promote understanding of the distinctive nature of Ukrainian history, society and culture, and the way they have been shaped by the historical and social context in and around Ukraine. Speakers will cover a range of areas, including history, politics, law, and culture. The first talk in the series is conceived as an in-person event; subsequent events will include a mixture of in-person talks and hybrid/remote delivery with local moderation. Refreshments will be provided.
For further information about the series, please contact Dr Olha Denkovych on
