Three New Publications for the Chair, Including a Volume on Identity Politics
Chairholder Dominique Arel recently co-edited Rebounding Identities: The Politics of Identity in Russia and Ukraine (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006), and authored its introduction, "Theorizing the Politics of Identities in Russia and Ukraine." The book came out of a series of workshops, led by Arel and Blair Ruble, director of the Kennan Institute, and involving an interdisciplinary group of young scholars. The book can be ordered on the web and its table of contents is available here.
Arel is also the author of "La face cachée de la Révolution Orange: l'Ukraine et le déni de son problème régional", featured in the December 2006 issue of the Revue d'études comparatives Est-Ouest (Paris, France). An English-language shorter version of the article was presented at a conference in Kyiv in October 2006 and was published in Ukrainian in the Kyiv monthly Krytyka (No. 11, November 2006).

2006, under the direction of Dominique Arel, Chairholder. Thirty-three panelists, including ten graduate and postdoctoral students, took part in the event. The Seminar offered an impressive array of seventeen presentations touching on civil society in Ukraine, such as the sources of popular mobilization during the Orange Revolution, trust and informal practices, gender, the media and citizenship, as well as ethnicity, religion, and language use. A special section on The Energy Crisis in Ukraine, including a presentation by Adrian Karatnycky, President of the Orange Circle, was also on the program. For the Danyliw Seminar Program, click here.

The Seminar was held in conjunction with a Workshop on Democracy and Civil Society in Ukraine organized by the Kennan Institute in Washington, DC — with the support of the Program of Research and Training on Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII), the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation, the Chair of Ukrainian Studies of the University of Ottawa, and the George F. Kennan Fund —and directed by Paul d'Anieri of the University of Kansas. All paper presentations of the Kennan Workshop were integrated into the Danyliw Seminar program. The papers will eventually appear in a book project.
The aim of the Danyliw Seminar was to provide a unique forum for researchers from Canada, the United States, Ukraine, Europe and elsewhere — from the disciplines of political science, anthropology, sociology, geography, economics and history — to engage in fruitful interdisciplinary dialogue, disseminate cutting-edge research papers through the Chair web site, encourage publications in various outlets, and stimulate collaborative research projects":
/ "The Seminar papers will be available shortly. Papers of the First Annual Danyliw Research Seminar in Contemporary Ukrainian Studies are available here. To know more about the purpose of the Seminar and the Danyliw Foundation, click here.
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.
