September 21, 2019
A special Ukrainian Historical Encounters Series event entitled Sobornist’ – Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the ‘Great Re-Unification’ of Ukrainian Lands, was held at the Ukrainian Museum/NY on May 4, 2019. The gathering convened six highlight focus sessions featuring eminent Ukrainian and US scholars tasked to take a fresh, critical look at the first modern attempt by Ukrainians to gather their major ethnographic lands into one unified national state in what has been dubbed as ‘Akt Zluky’ (January 22, 1919). The discussion featured mediations on the 20th century legacy of the endeavor as well as reflections upon the issues of ‘territorial integrity’ facing the present day Ukrainian ‘derzhava’.
