Eighteenth-Century Ukraine: New Perspectives on Social, Cultural, and Intellectual History edited by Zenon Kohut, Volodymyr Sklokin, and Frank Sysyn


We are pleased to announce our most recent publication about Ukrainian eighteenth-century history.

The Cossack revolution of 1648 redrew the map of Eastern Europe and established a new social and political order that endured until the early nineteenth century, with the full integration of Ukraine into imperial states. It was an era when Ukrainian Cossack statehood was established, when a country called Ukraine appeared for the first time on European maps, and new, diverse identities emerged.

Eighteenth-Century Ukraine provides an innovative reassessment of this crucial period in Ukrainian history and reflects new developments in the study of eighteenth-century Ukrainian history. Written by a team of primarily Ukrainian historians, the volume covers a wide range of topics: social history, demographics, history of medicine, religious culture, education, symbolic geography, the transformation of collective identities, and political and historical thought. Special attention is paid to Ukrainian-Russian relations in the context of eighteenth-century Russian imperial unification.

Eighteenth-Century Ukraine is the most comprehensive guide to new visions of early-modern Ukrainian history. We invite everyone interested to attend the book launch (in Ukrainian) and hear from the volume authors.
