Harvard Papers in Ukrainian Studies
The Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University has established the Harvard Papers in Ukrainian Studies as a medium for occasional papers, lectures, reports, reprints, long articles, and recent theses of particular merit. It also is a venue for monograph-length works that utilize new analyses and methodologies that broaden the field of Ukrainian studies. The series is not geographically limited to Ukraine proper—it also will examine questions of importance to surrounding countries, inasmuch as these questions are significant to the history and current development of Ukraine.
