Personal profile


My research examines human agency in the area of commemoration, and explores the ways and the extent to which ordinary people exercise their agency as compared with the state’s politics of memory.  Physical objects (including memorials, monuments and plaques) constitute the main focus of my research. I am currently focusing on the work of memory communities in the Poltava region (Ukraine) aimed at commemoration of the Heavenly Hundred (victims of the Euromaidan 2013-2014) and the Ukrainian soldiers who were killed in the Russia-Ukraine war (2014 - ongoing).

The project is supervised by Dr Ewa Ochman and Dr Olga Onuch.
