The Mapa: Digital Atlas of Ukraine project is undertaken by the Harvard Ukrainian Institute together with partners in Ukraine. It brings the latest innovations of information technology to studies of the modern Ukrainian History.
The project’s current focus is on the history of the Holodomor ("death-by-starvation") – the Great Ukrainian Famine of 1932-33. The Famine took lives of close to four million inhabitants of Ukraine and is one of the most studied, but also one of the most debated topics of the twentieth-century Ukrainian and Soviet history. >>>
Founded in June 1973, the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute (HURI) serves as a focal point for graduate and undergraduate students, fellows, and associates pursuing research in Ukrainian language, literature, and history as well as in anthropology, archaeology, art history, economics, political science, sociology, theology, and other disciplines.
Since 1970, the Institute has held a weekly seminar in Ukrainian Studies and, since 2001, the Ukraine Study Group, both meeting during the academic year. It also organizes symposia and conferences on a variety of related topics. >>>
