A vivid account of the Ukrainian Revolution, the rare moment when the political became the existential.

What is worth dying for? While the world watched the uprising on the Maidan as an episode in geopolitics, those in Ukraine during the extraordinary winter of 2013-14 lived the revolution as an existential transformation: the blurring of night and day, the loss of a sense of time, the sudden disappearance of fear, the imperative to make choices.

Marci Shore teaches European cultural and intellectual history at Yale University. The book will be available for purchase. Chair: Roman Senkus (Senior Editor, Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies)

Sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta (Toronto Office); the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine; and the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, University of Toronto.
