Delegation trip to Ukraine

For Project PUBLISH: Children’s Books in the Russia-Ukraine War

In early April, a joint Danish-Ukrainian team of researchers kicked off a new research project, PUBLISH: Children’s Books in the Russia-Ukraine War, with a trip to Ukraine, where they visited both Kyiv and Lviv to meet with Ukranian scholars, establish networks and collect research materials.

Our Department of Global Studies was represented by Birgitte Beck Pristed and Nadiia Pavlyk, who conducted in-depth interviews with directors of some of the leading Ukrainian children’s book publishers, and brought some 30 children’s books about the war back with them.

The project came about as a result of Birgitte and Nadiia meeting and discussing their research at the Ukrainian Scholars Days, a biannual event organised by the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters and The Danish Young Academy. The two presented their project there last month to great interest and acclaim (in Danish).
