Teaching at the University of Basel
In Basel Trevor Erlacher was teaching on the subject of “Nationalism and Socialism in Twentieth-Century Ukraine” during the 2018 autumn semester. The course explored the political and cultural history and the history of ideas of the regions forming today’s Ukraine from the late 19th century to 1991. The history of Ukraine was analysed as a nexus of interactions, conflicts, assimilations, faiths, parties, ethnicities and different states. The course focused on the historical situation of Ukraine as a colonised frontier region on the peripheries of various dynastic and totalitarian empires.
The course was open to BA and MA students of Eastern European studies, Eastern European history, history, European history in a global perspective, political science, European Global Studies and related subjects. The link to the course in the University of Basel calendar is available here.
