MAPA: Digital Atlas of Ukraine is a program undertaken by the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and its partners. It brings the latest innovations of information technology to studies of modern Ukrainian history and contemporary political geography. MAPA is a state of the art web-resource for researchers of Ukraine, envisioned as a tool that helps to overcome stereotypical macro-regional divisions. It is an open tool available for anybody interested in the study of Ukraine: journalists, students, researchers and think tankers.
At ZOiS, Kostyantyn Bondarenko and Dr. Viktoriya Sereda will present MAPA. In an introductory workshop, potential users get the chance to directly use the web-resource, get instructions and discuss possible applications. Please bring your own laptop or tablet.
Dr. Viktoriya Sereda is currently a Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Berlin (Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin).
Kostyantyn Bondarenkob is IT Professional at the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University and Project Manager for the MAPA: Digital Atlas of Ukraine program.
The event will be held in English and is followed by a light lunch. Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org until 9 May.
