The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine has been raging for more than five months by now. In these circumstances, expressing solidarity as well as professional and academic support to Ukrainian students, scholars, and researchers threatened by the military invasion remains to be an important objective at CEU and Blinken OSA. One such initiative the Archives has joined and worked on since it was launched by CEU in May 2022 is the certificate program for junior and senior undergraduate students from Ukraine, the Invisible University for Ukraine
. Colleagues from the Archives were actively teaching and mentoring in the program that was designed as a pilot for students and scholars at risk.
In July, the CEU IUFU program continued with the summer school program titled Making Ukraine Visible – Images, Narratives, Institutions, which took place from July 10–19, 2022, in the CEU complex in Budapest and in Lviv.
