The Chair of Ukrainian Studies, with the support of the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation, will be holding its Third Annual Danyliw Research Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine at the University of Ottawa on 27-29 September 2007. The Seminar will feature research papers, touching on Ukraine, from the disciplines of political science, anthropology (ethnology), sociology, economics, religious studies, demography, geography and other fields of social science. Papers with a theoretical and comparative focus are particularly solicited. Proposals touching on Belarus will also be considered.
For the first time, the Seminar will hold a special section devoted to current historical research. Applications on all themes, including but not limited to the topics of imperialism, the famine, the Second World War, and nation-building, will be examined.
Scholars and doctoral students are invited to submit a 1000 word paper proposal and a 250 word biographical statement, by email attachment, to Dominique Arel, Chair of Ukrainian Studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposal deadline is 31 May 2007. To be eligible, papers must not have been accepted for publication by the time of the Seminar. The Chair will cover the expenses of participants, including discussants, to the Seminar. An international selection committee will review the proposals and notify applicants shortly after the deadline.
The aim of the Seminar is to provide a unique forum for researchers from Canada, the United States, Ukraine, Europe and elsewhere to engage in fruitful inter-disciplinary dialogue, disseminate cutting-edge research papers on the Chair web site, encourage publications in various outlets, and stimulate collaborative research projects. Papers of the First Annual Danyliw Research Seminar in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies can be downloaded at http://www.ukrainianstudies.uottawa.ca/news/danyliw_conf05.html.
Papers from the Second Annual Seminar will be made available shortly on the website. The Seminar adopts the format of a Workshop, where each presentation is followed by group discussion, and is open to the public.
The Seminar is made possible by the commitment of the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation to the pursuit of excellence in the study of contemporary Ukraine.
