Russia's Famine Game

Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has changed the world’s food supply chains.
Products that Ukraine will not be able to deliver to the world market provoke a chain reaction: countries are increasing their food stocks and limiting food trade in the background of uncertainty, as a result, prices are rising, and the risk of hunger in poor countries is growing.

The Making of Modern Ukraine | Online Course from Yale Professor Timothy Snyder

The Making of Modern Ukraine: A Free Online Course from Yale Professor Timothy Snyder.

Historian Timothy Snyder is teaching a course at Yale University called The Making of Modern Ukraine. And he’s generously making the lectures available on YouTube so that you can follow along too. 

All of the currently-available lectures appear on this playlist. A syllabus for the course can be found here. Key questions covered by the course include:

What brought about the Ukrainian nation?  Ukraine must have existed as a society and polity on 23 February 2022, else Ukrainians would not have collectively resisted Russian invasion the next day.  Why has the existence of Ukraine occasioned such controversy?  In what ways are Polish, Russian, and Jewish self-understanding dependent upon experiences in Ukraine?  Just how and when did a modern Ukrainian nation emerge?  Just how for that matter does any modern nation emerge?  And why some nations and not others?  What is the balance between structure and agency in history?  Can nations be chosen, and does it matter?  Can the choices of individuals influence the rise of much larger social organizations?  If so, how?  Ukraine was the country most touched by Soviet and Nazi terror: what can we learn about those systems, then, from Ukraine?  Is the post-colonial, multilingual Ukrainian nation a holdover from the past, or does it hold some promise for the future?

Holodomor Descendants Network

Udemy | Free online history course

A free online course “Ukrainian Culture: Understanding the Country and Its People”.  Discover the “culture of freedom”, developed by the Ukrainian Institure and EdEra Learn about the milestones of Ukrainian culture and its contribution to the world.

What comes to your mind when you think about Ukrainian culture? Traditional clothes? Maybe, a few artists or writers? But these are only a shadow of what Ukrainian culture truly represents.

In this short course, ten scholars from different fields present ten topics, covering the essential aspects of Ukrainian culture. Each devoted to a particular angle, these videos reveal how past events, including external political and cultural domination by imperial powers, have shaped Ukrainian society.

Understanding contemporary events requires awareness of the cultural and social foundations of modern Ukrainian society. The Ukrainian nation has been developing for centuries. External powers often challenged it, and its growth was defined by geography, cultural exchanges, and global events.

In addition to the video lectures, the course offers important primary and secondary sources. They are texts, videos, and online resources that touch upon a range of issues in Ukrainian culture. Each of them will help you form a balanced and nuanced view of Ukrainian culture, identities, and society.

Ukraïnica

The newly launched by the Ukrainian Institute at Harvard University in partnership with the Ukrainian Institute – Ukraïnica is a database and syllabus-building tool to help you teach Ukraine in your classroom!
This platform is meant to be a constantly growing resource where everyone participates as a contributor. The main idea behind this platform is to help those outside the field of Ukrainian studies who would like to include topics on Ukraine in their teaching. With the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine of February 24, this has become even more urgent because one of putin’s goals has been to eradicate Ukraine and Ukrainians by destroying the country and killing the people, while erasing its history and culture. At the same time, because of the aggression, the interest in and demand for in-depth materials on Ukraine have never been higher.
