Video: Magocsi, Howlett discuss Ukrainian statehood and identity in London

Since the start of Russia’s full-scale war on Ukraine, the world has discovered the unity of Ukrainians of all backgrounds in protecting their statehood. However, in the past, Ukraine, a multilingual and multicultural state, has been frequently misunderstood, while its rich and complex identity has suffered from simplifications.

On 19 April 2023, UJE Board Member Professor Paul Robert Magocsi, in conversation with Oxford University’s Dr. Marnie Howlett, discussed the relationship between identity and statehood in Ukraine historically and today. The event was held in conjunction with the Ukrainian Institute London and the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter.
