During Russia’s centuries-long attempts to destroy the Ukrainian national identity, literature has been accumulating and storing the ideas of the restoration of Ukrainian statehood. Contemporary Ukrainian literature reflects the experience of living through war in the heart of Europe. New writers emerge who gain this experience directly in the battle zone.


In this public reading, we will talk with the books about:

  • How does literature, particularly veteran literature, create a new layer of Ukrainian identity?

  • Does this body of work sufficiently influence the shaping of a strong social and national consciousness?

  • What challenges does literature face today?
