Myroslav Shkandrij is professor of Slavic studies at the University of Manitoba. He lives in Winnipeg MB, Canada.
“This important literary history is encyclopedic in scope and novel
in its approach. Shkandrij questions platitudes about
Ukrainian-Jewish animosity as he narrates two hundred years of
changes in Ukraine’s national and cultural identity.”–Amelia
Glaser, University of California San Diego
“Shkandrij presents us with a poignant reminder of the intimate relationship that has existed between Jews and Ukrainians over the course of the last two centuries. With sophisticated analyses, historical context, and an even-handed approach, he demonstrates the degree to which Jews were imagined by the Ukrainian intelligentsia as part of the Ukrainian landscape.”–Jeffrey Veidlinger, Indiana University
