- About the book
DetailsThe Euromaidan protests of 2013–2014 and their ambivalent aftermath underscored why and how Ukraine remains a state between the East and West European pathways. The uprising and following events illustrated once more that Ukraine’s search for identity and future faces the challenge of historical fragmentations of the nation as a result of Ukraine’s long-standing and multiple ties beyond its borders. In this volume distinguished scholars provide empirical analysis and theoretical reflections on Ukraine’s transnational embeddedness which surfaced with an unexpected intensity in the recent political conflict. The contributions to this volume were written by André Härtel, Mikhail Minakov, Yuliya Yurchuk, Alexander Clarkson, Andriy Korniychuk, Magdalena Patalong, Richard Steinberg, Heiko Pleines, Susanne Spahn, Simon Schlegel, Veronika Borysenko, Mascha Brammer, Jonas Eichhorn, and the volume’s editors. They focus on such phenomena as the role of international media and of diaspora communities in the Euromaidan’s aftermath, on the transnational roots of different historical memories and of the search for collective identity, as well as on transnational linkages of elites within Ukraine’s political regime and economic institutions. The anthology explores the theoretical and analytical potential of the concept of transnationalism for a better deciphering of various ambivalences in post-Soviet modernization.
