Almanac "Books about Ukraine"

IWEK e.V. is publishing yearly the almanac "Books about Ukraine in German language". First two bands (published in 2022 and 2023) contain 40 book recommendations each: these are books about Ukraine and Ukrainians from Ukrainian authors that were translated in German language, but also books about Ukraine from German or Austrian authors. Our goal is to give an overview about Ukraine-related literature in German language. Almanacs are being distributed among German, Austrian, Swiss and Belgian universities, media, political institutions etc. Project manager: Hanna Slobodyanyuk-Montavon Editors: Anastasiia Gusieva (1st and 2nd volumes), Oksana Shchur (upcoming volumes)

The Armed Truth - Images of Ukrainian Media

This is a student-volunteer project, in association with Universität Potsdam, UAPP and guided by Prof. Dr. Wöll, offers a deeper look into Ukraine's reality through photographs, and a 30-year media landscape overview. Our project is broadcast in various forms, such as photo exhibitions and lectures, all aimed at promoting dialogue about Ukrainian history, language, and identity. We invite you weekly to participate, and engage in these discussions that strive for a profound understanding of the current situation. The enrollment to the course for WiSe 2023/24 is open. Project coordinators: Yevhenii Surniaiev and Danylo Poliluev-Schmidt, Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Alexander Wöll.
