The twelfth seminar of the series “Historians and the War: Rethinking the Future” will take place on December 15, Thursday, at 18:00-20:00 CET. The aim of the series is to discuss if and to what extent the war in Ukraine is changing our perception of the past and which new questions for historians it raises.
The seminar will be held in Ukrainian and English with simultaneous translation. The speakers will be:
- Viktoriia Romaniuk, Mohyla School of Journalism (Kyiv, Ukraine)
- Dmytro Tytarenko, Kryvyj Rih State Pedagogical University (Ukraine)
- Serhy Yekelchuk, University of Victoria (Canada)
The panel will be chaired by Kai Struve, Martin Luther University (Halle, Germany). At the end of the webinar the audience will have the possibility to ask questions.
In recent centuries, the informational component of any war has had a crucial impact on both the preparation and conduct of military operations, installation of occupying regimes, postwar “integration” of conquered lands, etc. This seminar plans to hold discussions of the role of informational and dissemination campaigns waged against Ukraine during the 20th century, including their main actors, as well as of the features of Russia’s current anti-Ukrainian propaganda and its role in the preparation and execution of the full-scale invasion.
