This workshop will focus on the Kiev Kultur-Lige in the broad context of parallel developments in Ukrainian culture and literature at the same time. The workshop, organized in the year of the Kultur-Lige’s
centenary, is aimed at broadening our knowledge of the history and lasting impact of this organization. Special attention will be paid to cultural and ideological interactions between the Kultur-Lige activists and their Ukrainian counterparts. The comparative study of languages, literatures, institutions, and crosscultural cooperation and interaction even in a time of interethnic conflict--is particularly timely and consequential for suggesting new approaches to similar conflicts today. Exploring the history of networks developed outside the confines of national boundaries and with a view to the promotion of literature, music, and theater can reveal synergies, intersections, and confluences across languages and cultures.
