Historical and Contemporary Studies


I am a historian with the main focus on history of Ukraine and Eastern Europe in 20th century. In 2015 i got PhD in history from Stockholm University and Södertörn University. My dissertation “Reordering of Reordering of Meaningful Worlds: Memory of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army in Post-Soviet Ukraine” focuses on the the use of history. I studied in Rivne (Ukraine), Göttingen (Germany) and Deusto (Spain) for Master degrees. Currently I am working as a researcher at Södertörn University in the projects "Information management in Russian-Ukrainian conflict" and "Religion and Politics in Ukraine: The Influence of Churches and Religious Traditions in Formation of Collective Memory" funded by the Baltic Sea Foundation. My main field of interest includes memory politics in East European countries, history of the Second World War, history of churches and religion, nationalism, state- and nation-building, gender studies and womens history, postcolonial studies.
