In July 2016, Katrin Boeckh and Guido Hausmann founded the new Interdisciplinary Study Group Ukraine (IAU) at the IOS. The Study Group is tied to longer traditions of research on Ukraine going back to the Institute for East European Studies (OEI), one of the predecessors of the IOS. The Group takes up the increasing interest in the political, economic, and historical-cultural developments in Ukraine in general and at the IOS. The Interdisciplinary Study Group sees itself as a loose network and an institutional basis for various Ukraine-related activities and has organized and co-organized a number of scholarly and public events since its establishment.


Call for Papers:  Ninth Annual Conference of the German-Ukrainian Historical Commission: From Soviet to Independent Ukraine: A Time of Radical Change

The current situation, above all Ukraine facing Russia’s full-scale invasion, encourage historians to explore anew the time of the breakup of the Soviet Union and of Soviet Ukraine, the international and national contexts of the birth of the Ukrainian state in 1991 and the deep and long-lasting transformation of Ukrainian society in the late 1980s and 1990s. The GermanUkrainian Historical Commission devotes in 2024 its annual conference to this era by discussing its key features and long-lasting effects. A space of experiences and expectations opened up during this time which deserves a more detailed investigation in order to assess its overall significance for Ukraine today.

Die Ostkarpaten als westukrainische Grenzlandschaft. Träume, Niederlagen, Modernismen (1914–1939)

Vortrag von Martin Rohde im Rahmen der Interdisciplinary Study Group Ukraine am IOS.

Während der Begriff heutzutage lexikalisiert ist, war die ‚Westukraine‘ sowohl ein Neologismus als auch eine neue Vorstellung, die sich erst während des Ersten Weltkriegs herauszubilden begann. In der Zwischenkriegszeit entwickelte er sich als Gegenbegriff zum polnischen Malopolska Wschodnia, der allerdings häufig auch die tschechoslowakischen und rumänischen Grenzländer umfasste. Der getrennte Ostkarpatenraum ist damit schon innerhalb dieser gängigen Selbstbezeichnung der Zwischenkriegszeit ein Symbol für die Niederlagen der ukrainischen Bewegung, gleichsam aber auch eine identitätsstiftende politische Landschaft.
