Kategorie: #DossierUkraine

#DossierUkraine takes the Russian war in Ukraine as a starting point for inquiries into politics, culture, and society in Ukraine, in (Eastern) Europe, and other regions of the world. The different threads of the series invite contributions, debates, views and positions of scholars, artists, cultural workers or journalists on matters of art and culture, the humanities and social sciences in times of crisis, on the use and misuse of historical narratives and legal norms, the circulation of images and texts, and their reception in various audiences and publics, on borders affirmed or transgressed, on divided or unified publics, authoritarian temptations and regimes, on food and energy security, the significance of heritage, among other things. By examining these and other issues, the Dossier hopes to shed light on the current war, to provide space for information and debate on occurring shifts that will affect the world for years to come.

#DossierUkraine #artandculture
The #artandculture thread of the #DossierUkraine series considers the Russian war in Ukraine from the point of view of artists, cultural workers, curators, journalists, and scholars. The thread stems from the art and research collective “Beyond the post-soviet”. In interviews and critical texts, it explores how politics and history are mediated through art, how identity is formed through cultural production, and the importance of heritage in a moment of crisis. Taking the current war as its starting point, the thread looks to the past, to trace shifts in Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and the broader “post-Soviet” space. It also gazes towards the future, to ask what is at stake and which new formations will arise. Collective members involved in this project: media and politics scholar Migle Bareikyte, art critic and curator Yulia Fisch, artist Borys Medvediev, researcher and editor Natasha Klimenko, cultural studies scholar Olga Osadtschy, and art worker Sasha Pevak. If you’d like to contribute, please contact Sophie.

#DossierUkraine #criticaljunctures
The #CriticalJunctures thread of the #DossierUkraine addresses the Russian war in Ukraine not as singular moment of crisis but also as a turning point with potentially long-term outcomes affecting dynamics in many world regions. This thread takes a transregional approach in several ways. First, historical perspectives are an important means of contextualizing the conflict as well as the misinformation disseminated during it. Second, the current crisis impacts life beyond Eastern Europe. We ask about the repercussions and impacts in world regions beyond Ukrainian-Russian relations, and consider how the current war is shaping regional dynamics and responses in other parts of the globe. Third, we encourage contributions that look beyond the short term to think about potentially long-lasting changes as societies, regional organizations, companies, and private individuals are compelled to act, creating precedent for future responses to crisis. This thread is supported by the research agenda of the Research Centre Global Dynamics at Leipzig University. If you’d like to contribute, please contact Megan Maruschke at megan.maruschke@uni-due.de.

#DossierUkraine is conceived as an open and modular form of contributions from different disciplines and regions of the university and world. Suggestions for new threads, single matters and contributions to existing threads by scholars, artists and practitioners of any discipline on archival, aesthetical, environmental, historical and other matters or issues of law, society, migration and others are welcome. Contributions are around 1.000-1.500 words. Suggestions for new threads should include a brief abstract that includes the guiding questions. Furthermore, we invite you to include up to 3 images (royalty-free or public domain) that relate to the thread topic. Please send your proposals to communication@trafo-berlin.de.
