Remembering Omeljan Pritsak on His 100th Birthday

April 7, 2019, marks the 100th anniversary of Omeljan Pritsak's birth. Pritsak was one of the founders of Ukrainian studies and the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard. An eminent Turkologist and professor at Harvard University, Pritsak's vision for a program of study on his native Ukraine helped ensure the West could become better acquainted with Ukrainian history and culture.

In honor of what would have been the scholar's 100th birthday, we're posting a biographical sketch of Omeljan Pritsak by Lubomyr Hajda. This article was published forty years ago in the journal Harvard Ukrainian Studies.

January 5, 2019, marked the beginning of a new era for religion in Ukraine. The newly formed Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU) received a Tomos, or decree of autocephaly, from the Patriarch of Constantinople. Parishes are now individually choosing to transition to the OCU.

Tornike Metreveli, a scholar who studies religion in Ukraine, recently gave a Seminar in Ukrainian Studies at Harvard. Here, he answers some questions about Orthodoxy in Ukraine and the significance of these recent events.  


Микола Рябчук в УНІГУ: Підсумки не на часі

Зараз як стипендіат Українського наукового інституту Гарвардського університету він працюватиме над темою «Православне слов'янство і проблеми модернізації: створення сучасної української, російської та білоруської ідентичності як звільнення від східнослов'янської уявної спільноти». Мета цього проекту – написання монографії, яка б охоплювала еволюцію творення сучасної ідентичності трьох слов'янських народів, і яка включала б аналіз і деконструкцію пов'язаних із цим процесом історичних, ідеологічних та квазірелігійних міфів.
