50273-01 - Practical course: Untimely Nation: Ukraine in East Central Europe 3 CP

Semester spring semester 2018
Course frequency Once only
Lecturers Valeriya Korablyova (valeriya.korablyova@unibas.ch, Assessor)
Content The course focuses on nation-building in post-Soviet Ukraine, its main frames, actors, and effects. While discussing the appropriate conceptual apparatus (territorial state, nation-state or state-nation), it also considers Ukraine in the broader context of global and regional processes and tendencies.
Arguably, Ukraine stands not only as an unexpected nation (as Andrew Wilson aptly noticed) but also as an untimely nation, as it has repeatedly failed to fit wider tendencies: counter to emerging post-imperial nation-states in East Central Europe in early 20th century, it did not acquire proper statehood (beside some episodes in 1918-20, limited in time and space); in 1990-s it fell out the framework of the ‘Autumn of Nations’, keeping heredity with the Soviet state in ruling elites and governing policies, while abstaining from the EU and NATO integration; and, finally, recently re-orienting itself on getting off the Russian influence by enforcing pro-national and pro-European rhetoric at times of Euroscepticism and of diminishing the ambitions of minor nation-states. We will examine the peculiar case of Ukraine in contrast to its neighboring countries that have been recently following the ‘subaltern empire’ path (Russia and Poland, most importantly).
The course tackles both theoretical and practical issues: on the one hand, by reassessing the notion of nationalism and modes of nation-building in the supposedly ‘post-national era’, and on the other, by deepening students’ knowledge on present-day Ukraine and the region at large.
