A Language Variety on Trial: Surzhyk Prosecuted and Defended in Post-Soviet Ukrainophone Language Ideology

Drukuj

The historical legacy of Ukrainian-Russian language contact under imperial conditions - a markedly asymmetrical bilingualism with uneven status relations, sharply differing regional patterns of language use, and heavy interference first and foremost affecting the Ukrainian language - still defines much of the framework for the politics of language in post-Soviet Ukraine. Positions taken in the language ideological debates on Ukrainian-Russian language contact form part of wider narratives on the Ukrainian-Russian cultural encounter, and are intimately connected with conceptualisations of national identity and of nation-building. Language contact and the socio-cultural and political conceptualisations of it in metalinguistic discourse are therefore central topics for the study of language ideologies in Ukraine.

Galicja postkolonialna czy postkolonialnie

Drukuj

W powieści Łukasza Saturczaka, Galicja, umiejscowiona pomiędzy literackim przedstawieniem Andruchowicza i Stasiuka, staje się palimpsestem. W jej opisie dostrzegamy nakładanie się na siebie wielu warstw przeszłości — chcianej, niechcianej, przemilczanej lub wyolbrzymianej — oraz trudnej do zaakceptowania i wszechwładnej teraźniejszości. Zderzenie pamięci pokoleniowej (dzieci, rodziców, dziadków) oraz współczesne dylematy Polaków i Ukraińców, dotyczące własnej tożsamości — przypominają o odrzuconym micie. Galicję Saturczaka tworzą zarówno Ukraińcy, Polacy, Rusini jak i Polacy narodowości ukraińskiej oraz wyznania mojżeszowego, Rosjanie, Ukraińcy o polskich korzeniach, żydowscy konwertyci, Sowieci, post-Sowieci, upowcy, akowcy, Franciszek Józef i Józef Piłsudski. Galicja to osobliwy mit, który należy porzucić ażeby dotrzeć do rzeczywistości — ale jednocześnie owa rzeczywistość wyjaśnia dlaczego teraźniejszość, złapana w sidła przeszłości, więcej ma w sobie elementów mitologizujących niż jej własny kult.

The poet Dmitry Prigov before and after the fall of the Soviet Union

Drukuj
The Russian poet and artist Dmitrij Prigov (1940-2007) dedicated his whole life to undermining Soviet propaganda, Soviet ideology and Soviet language. He deconstructed Russian culture in general, including Pushkin and Dostoevsky as well as the Russian avant-garde, in a similar manner. With his death a moment of closure was reached for an entire era of Russian culture as primarily characterized by settlements with Socialist Realism, Soviet language and Soviet propaganda.

One Sixth of the World: Avant-garde Film, the Revolution of Vision, and the Colonization of the USSR Periphery during the 1920s (Towards a Postcolonial Deconstruction of the Soviet Hegemony)

Drukuj
Although this article was originally presented at a conference on postcoloniality, I have to begin with a few reservations about the applicability of this term to the territories that were formerly owned or controlled by the USSR, and especially with regard to its Western frontier, i.e. the present-day Baltic States and the states of former Eastern Europe.[1] There are three objections against subsuming these

The Postcolonial Moment in Ukrainian Writing

Drukuj
My own experiences growing up in England and attending university were probably decisive in steering me in the direction of postcolonial studies. Upon entering Cambridge University I was questioned about my background. Learning that I was Ukrainian, one tutor, a Russian émigré, told me that the only difference between Russian and Ukrainian was the letter "h". A Russian, he informed, would say "Glavnyi gorod Galitsiii, eto - Lvov." A Ukrainian, on the other hand, would say "Hlavnyi horod Halitsii, eto - Lvov." When I countered that the correct Ukrainian was: "Holovne misto Halychyny, tse - Lviv," his answer was: "A, net, eto vy po-polski!" (Oh, no, now you're speaking Polish!) A second tutor, an Englishman, immediately began explaining to me that the Cossacks were simply bandits. My response was to cite the evidence of folklore and history showing that they were seen as defenders of a national movement and identity. I should add that these "introductions" to the subject on the part of my

Rosyjskie projekcje europeizmu a czynnik polski (od średniowiecza do epoki nacjonalizmów)

Drukuj
Drogi dziejowe Polaków i Rosjan ku Europie – od wspólnej przestrzeni geograficznej (jak ona przedstawiała się w czasach antycznych) do wspólnej przestrzeni cywilizacyjnej (która kształtowała się w miarę przyjmowania przez różne etnosy uniwersalnych wartości chrześcijaństwa) były zróżnicowane. Właśnie to wyznaczało swoistość zarówno ujmowania swojego uniwersum, jak i pojmowanie tożsamości własnej jako jego pochodnej, rzutując na wzajemne wyobrażenia o własnym sąsiedztwie.

The Experience of Otherness in Polish Poetry After 1990

Drukuj
In Polish poetry written after World War II we can find many traces of a desire of to be settled as well as a need to inhabit a place. These needs and desires are connected with the search for stable meaning and with the perception of space through the category of similarity. We will find few poems that project heterogeneous spaces, poems for which the experience of otherness is constitutive. Contrary to what Levi-Strauss proposes, Polish poetry of the 1960s or later, when the nightmare of the war had become more removed in time, does not enable the reader "to withdraw from the society of men and move into a different society" [Charbonier 2000, 75].
Although the poetry written in these times is concentrated on the idea of community, of the affirmation of a stable order of reality and tradition, encounters with otherness do nevertheless occur. However, the emphasis is placed on the feeling of community identity. The poets of this era feel that they should concentrate on what is eternal, universal, unaffected by time and context. In other words, poetic gestures appear

The Soviet and the Post-Soviet Discourses of Contemporary Ukraine: Literary Scholarship, the Humanities and the Russian-Ukrainian Interface

Drukuj

The two main topics proposed by this volume-colonialism and postcolonialism on the one hand and Sovietology (which I understand here primarily as the study of the Soviet legacy) on the other-involve broad and important areas which have a special relevance for contemporary Ukraine in general and for Ukrainian studies in particular.
