    How can you counteract an information war? Hromadske Radio, Public Radio Ukraine, decided to provide accurate and objective information to audiences – free of state and corporate censorship and any kind of manipulation. They broadcasted throughout Ukraine’s Euromaidan, and beyond. This book brings together a series of English language reports on the Ukraine crisis first broadcast on Hromadske Radio between 3 February 2014 and 7 August 2015. Collected and transcribed here, they offer a kaleidoscopic chronicle of events in Ukraine. Bookending the reports, purpose written introduction and conclusion sections contextualize the independent radio project within the larger picture of Ukraine’s media and political developments – both before the Euromaidan and in its dramatic aftermath. The book also features a preface by David R. Marples.

    Dr. Wolowyna will speak about the results of recent research conducted by a team of demographers from Ukraine and the US.

Also a comparative analysis of 1932-1934 famine losses at the regional level in Ukraine and of recent estimates of regional losses in Russia provide a new perspective on the Holodomor in particular and the 1932-1934 famine in general.

Vinogradov Russian Language Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, and Professor of European Languages, Institute of Linguistics, Russian State Humanities University. A socio-linguist and a specialist in lexical semantics, she is a longtime student of slang and everyday speech in both Russia and the USA. She is the editor-in–chief and co-author of the dictionary Slova s kotorymi my vse vstrechalis’: tolkovyi slovar obshchego russkogo zhargona (Words we have all encountered: An Explanatory dictionary of modern Russian general slang (1995), as well as a compiler of the Tolkovyi slovar russkoi razgovornoi rechi (Explanatory dictionary of Russian everyday speech)–(vol.1 2014; vol.2 in preparation).

    In her presentation “Russian life through the prism of everyday speech” Prof. Rozina explores the perspectives of Russian speakers on their everyday existence by analyzing semantic fields of everyday words. She focuses especially on the richest and most suggestive fields, such as FALL, DIRT, GREEDINESS, and ALIENS. Comparison between these semantic fields and corresponding ones in everyday English speech illuminates differences in the mentalities of Russian and English speakers.

    Description

    During WWII Lviv experienced a variety of traumatic occupations that disrupted the balance of relations between its major ethnic inhabitants, Poles, Jews, and Ukrainians. Prof Hnatiuk explores the myths, the animosities, and the interactions between these groups during the war years, dispelling many of the presumed truths about irremediable hostility and conflicts. Her focus is on the relations between individuals as documented in personal archives rather than on collective perceptions and activities.
