Transnational Ukraine? : Networks & Ties That Influence(d) Contemporary Ukraine Paperback / softback
Edited by Timm Beichelt, Susann Worschech
The Euromaidan protests highlighted Ukraine as a state between East and West European pathways.
It became obvious that Ukraines search for identity and future is deeply rooted in historical fragmentations of the country which indicate Ukraines long-standing and multiple ties beyond its borders.
In this volume, distinguished scholars provide empirical analysis and theoretical reflections on Ukraines transnational embeddedness which surfaced with an unexpected intensity in the recent political conflict.
The contributions focus on such phenomena as the role of international media and of diaspora communities in the Euromaidans aftermath, on the transnational roots of memories and the search for collective identity, and on transnational linkages of elites within Ukrainian political and economic regimes.
The anthology demonstrates the theoretical and analytical value of the concept of transnationalism for studying the ambivalent processes of post-Soviet modernization.
