History of Ukraine
Early-20th-century Ukrainian historiography was shaped by Mykhailo Hrushevskyi, a prolific historian and president of the Central Rada of the Ukrainian National Republic, who wrote about Ukraine as a nation that included lands under Russian and Austrian rule and had a distinct history from these empires. His students included Myron Korduba, Ivan Krypiakevych, and Bohdan Barvinskyi, with their works featured below. Hrushevskyi’s historiographical approach became the norm among Ukrainian historians, including for Marxist historians like Matvii Yavorskyi, although most Russian historians rejected it. The publications in this exhibit include surveys of Ukrainian history from Kyivan Rus to the 20th century, studies of Ukrainian national revival movements, analyses of relations between Ukraine and other countries, and military histories.
