America and Europe. Proposals involving cross-national comparisons in 
the wider context of the post-communist space are encouraged.

limited to, the following:
    * Democratization and democracy consolidation;
    * State-society relations;
    * Political economy;
    * Ukraine's foreign relations and national security;
    * Regionalism and identity;
    * Rethinking Ukrainian literature and culture since independence;
    * Rewriting the past: new approaches to Ukrainian history.

To be considered as a candidate for presentation at the symposium, 
please submit an abstract (maximum 750 words) and curriculum vitae by 
November 19, 2007. The abstract should include a statement of 
objectives, methods, expected results and conclusions.  Submissions
