Ukrainian Politics in Galicia: 18601878

Description: CIUS Seminar Audio Part 1 and 2.

The final Institute seminar of the current academic year at the University of Alberta took place on March 30, 1978. Dr. J.-P. Himka spoke on "Ukrainian Politics in Galicia, 1860-78." Ukrainians in the crownland of Galicia underwent internal political differentiation in the early years of Austria's constitutional era, a differentiation that dominated western Ukrainian politics into the twentieth century. In the years 1860-78 three political groupings crystallized: Russophiles, Ukrainophiles, and Radicals. Russophiles, in reaction to Polish domination in Galicia, developed an orientation toward tsarist Russia, considering themselves Russians, and rejecting a separate Ukrainian identity. Ukrainophiles and Radicals, however, identified themselves with the Ukrainian nation and employed the Ukrainian vernacular of Galicia in their publications. Although Ukrainophiles and Radicals adopted a similar position on the national question, they differed on social issues. / The speaker outlined the development of the differentiation, emphasizing social and cultural motivating factors.
