TCUP: Borderlands and Contact Zones Conference
TCUP—the Temerty Contemporary Ukraine Program—is a new initiative at HURI that focuses on matters related to today's Ukraine. Here, Emily Channell-Justice, TCUP Director, discusses key points of a conference she recently attended in Ukraine.
"From September 11-14, I attended the Borderlands and Contact Zones in Ukraine and the Black Sea Region conference in Vinnytsia, Ukraine, co-hosted by the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland) and the Vasyl’ Stus Donets’k National University, based in Vinnytsia. The conference highlighted research related to St. Gallen’s own project on borderlands, as well as additional papers from around the region."
