The potential of Lviv-Berlin Dialogue: Deepening of Cooperation between the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and Humboldt University of Berlin

JANUARY 5, 2016 – Funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Humboldt University in Berlin together with the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv implements an international project “The Potential of Art and Literature in the Context of Political Crisis and War».

Project coordinators are Associate Professor of Theory of Literature and Comparative Literature of IFNUL, member of research programs at European and American universities Professor Olena Haleta and the Professor of Humboldt University in Berlin, head of Department of East-Slavic Languages and Cultures at the Institute of Slavonic Studies Susanne Frank. The project involves academic exchanges of students and teachers from both universities, international seminars, study tours to Lviv and Berlin, and, moreover, creating an English-speaking website with research materials of the project.

In November 2015 the young Ukrainian scientists had the opportunity to attend educational and research institutions, memorials and cultural centers of Berlin within 10 days, in order to better understand the historical experience of Germany, as well as ways and forms of interaction which Germans undergo with their own past, and the general functioning of cultural memory.

The participants of the Ukrainian-German project aimed to analyze the features of the protest movement of the Maidan and the war in Donbass through the prism of art space and aesthetic categories to explore potential cultural dimension of the political crisis and war. For a relatively short period of time they have been actively working at their own research. They studied historical events, examined monuments and museums and interacted with actual participants and witnesses of events: with writers, artists, ethnographers and anthropologists.

Consequently, on the 10th of September, 2014, there has been signed the cooperation agreement between the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and Humboldt University of Berlin. Thus, the Universities aim to continue the implementation of a number of scientific and educational projects, particularly in the fields of Slavonic Studies and Pedagogy.
