HURI’s Historical GIS Project
On June 24, 2015 the Holodomor Atlas, a unique online resource, was presented in Kyiv at the National Memorial Museum of Holodomor Victims in Ukraine. It is a result of collaboration between Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and a group of historians, demographers and other experts from different institutions in Ukraine, and presents an interactive GIS-based series of maps of the Great Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933.
Launch of the Journal of Ukrainian Politics and Society

This publication, Krytyka's newest project, is an English-language interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed scholarly journal that sees its mission in promoting social sciences in Ukraine.
Rus’ Genealogy Project
The Rus’ Genealogy component of the MAPA project is part of a larger attempt to shift the perceptions of modern scholars to include Rus’ in the wider narrative of medieval Europe, and to create a picture of the medieval European world that fits the evidence from the primary sources -- one that stretches from the Atlantic in the west to the Dnieper River in the East. One of the chief ways to do this is by looking at the connectivity between Rus’ and the rest of Europe, and one of the richest sources of data is in the arena of dynastic marriage.
