Mapping Difference: The Many Faces of Women in Contemporary Ukraine
Presentation and book signing at the UIMA
Saturday, June 23 at 7:00 PM
The book of essays by scholars in various disciplines focuses on the challenges confronting women in Ukraine today. Each author offers a fresh perspective on a key issue: from survival in a patriarchal society, to the pressures of economic migration, to the lack of gender equality and political power, to questions of nationalism and democracy.
Marian J. Rubchak is a Senior Research Professor of History at Valparaiso University whose work focuses on reimagining Slavic identities in various contexts. She has written on the role of myth in shaping the identity of contemporary Ukrainian women and the difficulties they face in a transitional society that is often biased against women.
Cost: $10 for Members of UIMA and CBPG, $15 for non-members
The book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
