This course surveys the turbulent history of Ukrainian literature and culture in the twentieth century, from the early modernist upheavals through the abortive renaissance of the 1920s (a fascinating example of a non-Russian Soviet culture), the short-lived thaw of the 1960s and up to the blossoming of Ukrainian postmodernism. In addition to literature, the course will discuss examples from other arts (film, theater, painting). The readings for this course are available in parallel lists in English and Ukrainian.You do not need to have taken "Introduction to Ukrainian Literature I" to take the course.
