Congratulations to Dr. Yuliya V. Ladygina (German and Slavic Languages and Literatures), whose book, Bridging East and West: Ol’ha Kobylians’ka, Ukraine’s Pioneering Modernist, has been published with Toronto University Press earlier this month. Dr. Ladygina’s work explores the literary evolution of one of Ukraine’s foremost modernist writers, Ol’ha Kobylians’ka, who was a major contributor in the most significant intellectual debates of her time. Investigating themes of feminism, populism, Nietzscheanism, nationalism, and fascism in her works, Bridging East and West presents an alternative intellectual genealogy in turn-of-the-century European arts and letters whose implications reach far beyond the field of Ukrainian studies. Kobylians’ka emerges in this study as an unlikely, but no less active, trailblazer in the social and aesthetic theories that would define European debates about culture, science, and politics in the first half of the twentieth century.
