Professor, Department of Modern and Contemporary History of Ukraine, Ukrainian Catholic University

Title of Research:

"Dmytro Dontsov: The Lviv Period of His Activities, 1922-1939" 

Oleksandr Zaytsev is a professor in the Department of Modern and Contemporary History of Ukraine at the Ukrainian Catholic University. At HURI, he will conduct research to complete a monograph on the Lviv (Vistnyk) period of Dmytro Dontsov’s activities and writings, placing his works in the context of the intellectual and cultural milieu of interwar Galicia, as well as Dontsov’s private and public life. Zaytsev aspires to provoke a discussion about the nature of Dontsov’s “active nationalism” and undermine the tendency of seeing it in isolation from the wider context of interwar and wartime European history.
