Free webinar series Ukrainian

02 May 2022

Have you recently had a lot of contact with Ukrainians, for example because you have taken in refugees or have Ukrainian students in your class? The Language Centre hosts a free webinar series on the Ukrainian language which will help you to connect. Yuliya Kazanova* will introduce you to Ukrainian in two consecutive webinars.

The first webinar, on Tuesday 10 May, will focus on the Slavic language family to which Ukrainian belongs. In this webinar, you will learn how Ukrainian relates to the other Slavic languages and there will be an introduction to Ukrainian literature.

The second webinar, on Tuesday 17 May, will involve a crash course in Ukrainian, in which you will learn a little Ukrainian yourself.

The webinars will be given in English. You can choose to participate in both webinars, but they can also be followed separately!

Date and time: Tuesday 10 May and Tuesday 17 May, 5 to 6 p.m.
For whom: Those working with Ukrainians and other interested parties

*This webinar series will be given by Yuliya Kazanova, lecturer in Russian at the Department of European Languages and Cultures at the University of Groningen. Yuliya holds a PhD in English from the University of Leeds. Her research interests include twentieth-century English fiction and contemporary Ukrainian literature. She has taught Russian language and Slavic literatures at the University of Leeds and is a Chartered Linguist (Translation and Education). She translated The Culture of Spontaneity: Improvisation and the Arts in Postwar America (Kyiv: Fakt, 2009) by Daniel Belgrad into Ukrainian.
