Битва за Українську Мову Через Призму Сучасної Науки

battle for ukr feature

Кілька місяців тому Український науковий інститут Гарвардського університету видав збірку статей «Битва за українську мову. Компаративістська перспектива» під редакцією Майкла С. Флайєра та Андреа Ґраціозі. Збірка містить матеріали конференції «Держави, народи, мови: Порівняльна політична історія української мови, 1963 – 2013», яку в червні 2014 року при сприянні Фонду катедр українознавства провів УНІГУ.

Інтердисциплінарна конференція такого масштабу викликала великий інтерес з боку наукової громадськості, а той факт, що вона відбулася в часи анексії Криму й російської агресії на Донбасі, додав особливої гостроти кожному з аргументів, які за інших обставин могли б зацікавити хіба що вузьких фахівців. Адже, як зазначають у своїй передмові М. Флайєр та А. Ґраціозі, «мовне питання є ключовим у нинішньому конфлікті між Україною і Росією.»  Далі читайте тут.

Презентація Мовного Модуля Проекту «МАПА»

MAPA Lang Launch feature

Значення мовного питання для сучасної України важко переоцінити. Адже мова у нас традиційно вважалася визначальним чинником національної ідентичності.

Зараз, упродовж уже кількох років, над соціолінгвістичним компонентом проекту «МАПА. Цифровий атлас України: Революція Гідності» наполегливо працює відомий львівський вчений д-р Вікторія Середа, доцент кафедри соціології Українського католицького університету. Цей компонент включає два модулі – «Пам'ять та ідентичність» та «Мова». 

Модуль «Мова» дає змогу дослідникам бачити весь спектр соціолінгвістичної панорами українського суспільства між 2013 і 2017 роками. Він містить статистичні дані про використання мови й про ставлення респондентів до сучасної мовної політики в Україні. Дані, представлені в мовному модулі, дають змогу порівняти мовні практику та самоідентикацію українців по всіх областях країни, як в містах, так і на селі. Далі читайте тут.

War of Words: New MAPA Module Illuminates Language Practices in Ukraine

Language Map

MAPA: Digital Atlas of Ukraine provides an unparalleled tool for analyzing Ukraine along the lines of some of the most pressing topics facing the country today. HURI is please to announce the launch of its latest module (or thematic group of map layers): the "Language" module.

“Language is a key issue in today’s politics in Ukraine and the region,” said Serhii Plokhii, HURI MAPA Project Faculty Director. “The proposed change of language legislation was used as a pretext for the Russian annexation of Crimea, and language politics were key in the Kremlin’s attempt to create Novorossiya (New Russia) in Southern Ukraine. Today, the language component of the education law is the most controversial and broadly discussed part of that legislation.”

As Plokhii says, “You can’t understand contemporary Ukraine without looking at our maps.” Read more.

Admissions

2018 Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute

Admission Policy

2018 Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute offers unique courses in Ukrainian studies taught by Harvard faculty. These courses are intended for graduate students and advanced undergraduates who are concentrating in Ukrainian studies or who wish to broaden their educational experience. Although the Harvard Summer School has an open-enrollment policy, admission to the Ukrainian Summer Institute is based on the applicant’s academic record, a letter of recommendation, and an essay. Once accepted into the program, applicants must then complete the Harvard Summer School registration process.

Tuition for HUSI is commensurate with tuition rates charged for all other Harvard Summer School courses. Tuition for 2018 and the cost of on-campus room and board will be posted on the Harvard Summer School website in January. 

Applicants may register for 8 or 4 credits to participate in the program. Applicants seeking the I-20 certificate for the student F-1 US visa must register for 8 credits.

All students seeking financial aid (US and international) must submit the HUSI application and supporting material by Monday, March 12, 2018. International students who do not seek financial aid must submit the HUSI application by Monday, April 16, 2018.

  • Ukrainian for Reading Knowledge - 8 credits
  • Revolutionary Ukraine: Avant-garde Literature and Film from 1917 to the Euromaidan of 2014 - 4 credits
  • Laboratory of Modernity: Politics, Culture, and Society in Ukraine, 1800-Present - 4 credits

Applicants wishing to register for a total of 8 credits must enroll in at least one HUSI 4 credit course to be considered part of the Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute and may choose an additional 4 credit course from those offered by the general program of the Harvard Summer School. Applicants who decide to register for a non-HUSI course need to register for that course separately online through the Harvard Summer School. Please note that financial aid is not available for non-HUSI courses.

Fees and Financial Aid

Funding Opportunities

Ukrainian for Reading Knowledge is a FLAS-eligible language course.

Harvard and non-Harvard graduate and undegraduate students may thus apply for FLAS funding through Harvard's Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies and through their home institution, provided it participates in the US Department of Education sponsored program.
