Ukrainian identity map in wartime: Thesis-antithesis-synthesis?

The cultural and linguistic heterogeneity of Ukraine is a well-known fact, used and abused in explanations of the ongoing war. Having taken root in the early modern period in the interstitial area contested by three empires – Polish, Turkish and Russian – the Ukrainian nation was, indeed, formed through demographic processes that have left in their wake a complex multi-ethnic composition with varied legacies.

Published in collaboration with the Memory Studies Association

This book series publishes innovative and rigorous scholarship in the interdisciplinary and global field of memory studies.

The Walls of Santiago

Social Revolution and Political Aesthetics in Contemporary Chile

Terri Gordon-Zolov and Eric Zolov

Sensing Cumulative Toxicities

Anita Hardon & Tait Mandler

In our everyday lives we encounter and are exposed to a dizzying array of chemicals – through the air we breathe, water we drink, food we eat, products we buy, work we do, and environments we move through. A recent review of the scientific literature estimates that the accelerating mass-production of chemicals has led to the accumulation of 350,000 “novel entities” (human-made chemicals that did not previously exist) in the environment.[1] They suggest this exceeds the “planetary boundary” for chemical pollution, meaning it is and will continue to disrupt the operation of ecological systems and have major impacts on human health.

Why organise a special section on decolonising Europe?

Patrícia Ferraz de Matos and Livio Sansone

In recent years, problems linked to racism and the colonial past have appeared more markedly in the public sphere. There is almost always an episode that triggers this appearance more effectively. In 2020 it was the murder of the African American George Floyd in Minneapolis. In the United States of America, excessive violence against Black people, namely by police forces, once again resulted in death and gave rise to much protest.
