Ukraine's Internally Displaced Crimeans: Regional, National, and Diasporic Identities

CREECA Fall Lecture Series

Event Details

Thursday, October 10, 2019
4-5:15 p.m.
Austin Charron discusses findings from his PhD dissertation concerning socio-spatial identities among residents of Crimea who were internally displaced to mainland Ukraine following Russia’s annexation of the peninsula in 2014. His work examines evolving discourses of regional and national belonging among Crimea’s ethnic Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians, and Russians now living in the Ukrainian cities of Kyiv and Lviv, and considers the question of whether these groups may constitute a diaspora.
