NEW YORK – 2018 marks 100 years since the declaration of modern Ukrainian statehood with the formation of the Ukrainian National Republic in 1918 – an event that was celebrated for decades throughout the Ukrainian diaspora and recognized throughout the United States.
This September, several of the world’s most knowledgeable scholars of Ukrainian history, hailing from the United States, Canada and Ukraine will gather in New York City to present at a special conference titled “Commemorating the Ukrainian National Republic and Its Legacy.”
The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America and the Center for U.S.-Ukrainian Relations, the co-sponsoring organizations, invite the Ukrainian American community to attend this landmark conference, examining the scope and ultimate meaning of the Ukrainian National Republic (UNR) – the predecessor of the modern Ukrainian state – and the legacy it engendered.
This special gathering of the Ukrainian Historical Encounters Series will take place in New York City at the Princeton Club of New York on Saturday, September 22.
Following the forum, the day will conclude with an evening banquet attended by high-level government officials from the United States and Ukraine, who will reflect upon current affairs in Ukraine.
