Krytyka was founded in 1997 by Harvard University professor of Ukrainian literature George G. Grabowicz, and a few Ukrainian intellectuals. Krytyka took as its inspiration The New York Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement and the Polish, Paris-based journal Kultura. The publication continues to offer detailed and research-based analyses of historical, political, and cultural developments in Ukraine, Russia, and Eastern Europe; its main audience consists of intellectuals, university faculty, and graduate students. Krytyka is an avant-garde journal for discussions on issues otherwise less discussed in the Ukrainian context: historical memory, xenophobia, gender and sexual discrimination, revisions of the literary canon, problems of Ukrainian scholarship and education, and so on.
