Lecture by Prof. Anna Procyk (CUNY)
April 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Shevchenko Scientific Society invites all to a lecture “Mykhailo Hrushevsky’s political ideas and tactics during Ukraine’s struggle for independence in the opinion of Russian intellectuals,” by Professor Anna Procyk, (CUNY). The lecture will explore the reasons for the high marks a number of leading Russian intellectuals (among them the historian Pavel Miliukov and the jurist Baron Nol’de) gave to Mykhailo Hrushevsky, the leader of the Ukrainian Central Rada during Ukraine’s struggle for independence. In their estimation, the sophisticated Ukrainian historian towered far above the heads of the political dilettantes in the Russian Provisional Government of 1917. This was the reason, they argued, for the success of the establishment of firm foundations for Ukraine’s independence.
