"Ukraine digital" - neues DAAD-Projekt am GiZo

“Ukraine digital: Ukraine in its transcultural and transnational context”






Ukraine digital: Ukraine in its transcultural and transnational context” is a project of virtual mobility of the Justus Liebig University of Giessen (JLU) together with the National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” (NaUKMA).

The project is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), funding provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), as part of the programme “Ukraine digital: Ensuring Academic Success in Times of Crisis”.

It is aimed at ensuring academic success in times of war, maintaining virtual courses, fostering internationalisation, digitalisation and integration into the European system of higher education as well as strengthening the longstanding partnership between the NaUKMA and the JLU.

Our “Co-teaching programme for European integration (Taste)” in form of the five online tandem seminars (courses) will provide students and teachers of NaUKMA and JLU with a room for exploring Ukrainian language, history, culture, literature, and society, reflecting on the current state of war, and strengthening Ukrainian voices:

  • “Ukrainian language and Russia’s war against Ukraine” (Prof. Dr. Natalya Kobchenko and Prof. Dr. Monika Wingender);
  • “Skovoroda and the migration of cultural concepts” (Dr. Rostyslav Semkiv and Prof. Dr. Thomas Daiber);
  • “Central Europe 1989-2021: Transformation, Persistence, Perdurance” (Dr. Ola Hnatiuk, Prof. Dr. Peter Haslinger, and Dr. Simon Donig);
  • “Re-Thinking Ukrainian Donbas in Fiction, Memoirs, and Visual Arts” (Dr. Olha Poliukhovych and Dr. Oleksandr Chertenko);
  • “European Norms, Identities and Democracy support” (Dr. Anna Osypchuk and Prof. Dr. Andrea Gawrich (via a stand-in-colleague).
