On October 13-15th, Kateryna Zarembo attended Danyliw Research Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine
Kateryna Zarembo joined two panels on international relations and identities as a discussion participant and presenter of the new book.
Danyliw Seminar — unique forum for researchers from Canada, Ukraine and elsewhere open to all social science and humanities research topics touching on Ukraine. The event also provides opportunity for presentations of new books and researches on Ukraine, which included the very first presentation of Kateryna’s Zarembo new book “The Sun of Ukraine Rises in the Donbas”.
The book itself is soon to appear in Ukrainian bookstores and its main ideas include are the following:
- Donbas is more than we knew about it before — it’s certainly not a homogeneous region and consists of multiple subregions, languages and dialects, identities and religions
- Russia constructed artificial myths on Donbas being a proletarian coal and metallurgical region and its industrial leap as mainly Russian achievement. Moreover, most technologies and production facilities were predominantly created by the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, and France.
“The Sun of Ukraine Rises in the Donbas” gathers various stories from the academic, intellectual and artistic circles, rural life, as well as the religious sphere of Donetsk and Luhansk regions to analyse development in Donbas region before 2014.
