Bilingualism and Multilingualism in a National Movement: Ukrainian Writers in the Nineteenth Century

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Of the developments that shaped today s political and cultural world, the formation of modern nations was among the most consequential. The identities of these newly self-aware national communities were moulded, to an important extent, by modern national literatures. This project will serve to illuminate such processes through a study of the literature of the Ukrainian national movement in the Russian and Austro-Hungarian Empires. The resulting monograph and other publications will analyse the interaction in the nascent literature of writing in two or more languages: the language of the nation being formed, and the dominant languages of the imperial states that encompass it.
