Contextualizing the Holodomor: The Impact of Thirty Years of Ukrainian Famine Studies

It was in the 1980s that the Famine of 1932–33 in Ukraine became the subject of serious academic study with the publication of Robert Conquest’s ground-breaking The Harvest of Sorrow. In 2013, on the 80th anniversary of the Holodomor, HREC partnered with several institutions to organize a conference examining what 30 years of scholarly work on the Famine has added to our understanding of Ukrainian history, Soviet history, communism, and genocide studies. This volume contains articles presented at a conference by the same name organized by HREC.
