Maïdan Generation
  • Interview with Ioulia Shukan — maîtresse de conférences en études slaves — Université Paris Nanterre (Institut des sciences sociales du politique - CERCEC-EHESS/CNRS)
From the occupation of Maïdan Square in November 2013 to the outbreak of armed combat beginning in May 2014, Ioulia Shukan examines the representations and emotions underpinning the politization of ordinary citizens in Ukraine. Focusing on their itineraries and subjectivities, she shows the transformations in their commitments, from mobilization to violence and from violence to reform of the institutions.
Having specialized in the sociology of elites, Ioulia Shukan analyzes the occupation of Maïdan Square and the political destinies of those engaged in the “revolutionary” movement that shook Ukraine beginning in the Autumn of 2013.
