While scholars have written on Ukrainian-Russian, Ukrainian-Polish, and Polish-Russian relations as distinct themes, this project treats them as  interconnected elements of a broader, tri-national process. Thus, for example, it considers how events on the Polish-Russian “frontier” within the Russian Empire affected Polish views of Ukraine and how Ukrainians evaluated these same events. By taking this “triangular” approach, what initially appear to be surprising constellations of shifting affinities and antagonisms become much more comprehensible.

This was a Andrei Sheptyts'kyi Senior Fellowship as part of the Ukraine in European Dialogue program. These fellowships are offered by invitation to outstanding international scholars who have demonstrated longstanding intellectual solidarity with Ukraine.
