Keanote ‘Modernizing Ukraine: Revolutions and Distopias in the 20th Century’

Revolution is the event of launching new beginnings in the public sphere, and thus modernity is being constructed through revolution. In the 20th century, Ukraine has gone through a series of revolutions: in 1917/22, 1932/39, 1945/49, 1953/56, 1989/91; however instead leading to modernization, they had – after shortlived progresses – the reverse effect. In my lecture I will review the logic of socio-political experimentation in 20th century Ukraine and the revolutionary practices in Eastern Europe.
