The Royal Historical Society has announced the award of fellowships to seven Ukrainian historians, Slavonic and East European Studies Scholars unable to continue their work at home universities.
We are very pleased to announce one of these fellowships has come to the University of Aberdeen with the support of the German History Society Fellowship.
Dr Natalia Gromakova received the fellowship for a project comparing the social and associational life of Polish society in the nineteenth-century Ukrainian lands occupied by Austria and Russia after the Third Partition of Poland in 1795 up to the First World War. She will be working closely with the Centre for Polish-Lithuanian Studies as part of the School of Divinity, History, Philosophy and Art History at the University of Aberdeen. The fellowship is of the value of £ 5,000 to be matched by at least equal university funding. Dr Gromakova, who works at the National Pedagogical University in Kyiv as a postdoctoral researcher, had to flee Bucha in March and sought sanctuary in the UK under the Home for Ukraine Scheme. She is delighted that she can continue her research work in safety and is already preparing a paper for a future Centre seminar series. Please see RHS announcement at:
