First Annual Danyliw Research Seminar in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies
Chair of Ukrainian Studies, University of Ottawa, 29 September-1 October


The Chair of Ukrainian Studies, with the support of the Wolodymyr George
Danilyw Foundation, is launching an Annual Research Seminar on
Contemporary Ukraine. The Seminar will feature research papers, touching
on Ukraine, from the disciplines of political science, anthropology
(ethnology), sociology, economics, demography and geography. Historical
papers with a bearing on the understanding of contemporary problems will
also be considered. Papers with a theoretical and comparative focus, are
particularly solicited.

Scholars and graduate students (enrolled in a PhD program or the
European equivalent) are invited to submit a 1000 word paper proposal
and a 250 word biographical statement, by email attachment, to Dominique
Arel, Chair of Ukrainian Studies, at darel@uottawa.ca. The proposal
deadline is 27 April 2005. To be eligible, papers must not have been
accepted for publication by the time of the Seminar. The Chair will
cover the expenses of participants, including discussants to the
Seminar. An international selection committee will review the proposals
and notify applicants by the end of May 2005.

The aim of the Seminar is to provide a unique forum for researchers from
Canada, the United States, Ukraine, Europe and elsewhere to engage in
fruitful inter-disciplinary dialogue, disseminate cutting-edge research
papers on the Chair web site, encourage publications in various outlets,
and stimulate collaborative research projects. The Seminar will adopt
the format of a Workshop, where each presentation will be followed by
group discussion.

The Seminar is made possible by the commitment of the Wolodymyr George
Danyliw Foundation to the pursuit of excellence in the study of
contemporary Ukraine.
