Description: Join the KU Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES) in welcoming esteemed Ukrainian poet Lyuba Yakimchuk to Lawrence for this year's annual Palij Lecture. On Sunday November 6th at 2pm Lyuba will give a talk titled "Ball and Chain: Russian Culture Invasion of Ukraine." What is currently happening in Ukraine is not just a war but the spread of archaic Russian culture all over Ukraine. How does Russian culture tradition affect Ukrainian culture during the ongoing war? How are Ukrainian and Russian languages changing in Ukraine? Why are profanities no longer a taboo? In which way do language changes affect poetry? This talk is about culture as a part of war and politics. The event is free and open to the public. It will take place at the Cider Gallery in East Lawrence. Lyuba Yakimchuk is a Ukrainian poet, screenwriter, and journalist. She is the author of several full-length poetry collections, including Like FASHION and Apricots of Donbas, and the film script for The Building of the Word. Yakimchuk’s awards include the International Slavic Poetic Award and the international “Coronation of the Word” literary contest. Her writing has appeared in magazines in Ukraine, Sweden, Germany, Poland, and Israel, and and has been translated into eleven languages. She performs in a musical and poetic duet with the Ukrainian double-bass player Mark Tokar; their projects include Apricots of Donbas and Women, Smoke, and Dangerous Things. Her poetry has been performed by Mariana Sadovska (Cologne) and improvised by vocalist Olesya Zdorovetska (Dublin). Yakimchuk also works as a cultural manager. In 2012 she organized the “Semenko Year” project dedicated to the Ukrainian futurists, and she curated the 2015 literary program Cultural Forum “Donkult” (2015). She was a scholar in the “Gaude Polonia” program of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (Poland). In 2015 Kiev’s New Time magazine listed Yakimchuk among the one hundred most influential people of culture in Ukraine.
