International Research Conference "The Black Sea and Black Sea Region as a Contact Zone of Civilizations and Cultures" (IX Drynov Readings)


The International Research Conference “The Black Sea and Black Sea Region as a Contact Zone of Civilizations and Cultures” (IX Drynov Readings) has started its work at Karazin University.

The event organizers are V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University in cooperation with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the Center for Interethnic Relations Research in Eastern Europe (Kharkiv), Zaporizhia, Odesa, and Chernivtsi Universities, with the financial support of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies of the University of Alberta.

The Presidium of the plenary session consisted of the University President, Vil Bakirov, the Head of the Modern Ukrainian Studies Program at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies of the University of Alberta, Volodymyr Kravchenko, the Head of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Julian  Revalski, the Director of M. Drynov Center for Bulgarian and Balkan Studies, Serhii Strashniuk.

Vil Bakirov addressed those present in his welcoming speech, “The two states have close relationships that go back to the XIX century. At the time, Maryn Drynov simultaneously headed two associations, in particular the Bulgarian Academic and Kharkiv Historical-Philological ones. This cooperation exists, continues to develop and is complemented with new content every year. Among other things, 12 years ago, M. Drynov Center for Bulgarian and Balkan Studies was created, and the Cyril and Methodius Center was recently opened due to the grant support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria and with the University’s participation.”

He also stressed that Maryn Drynov’s personality is unique, which, even a century later, continues to unite the two Slavic peoples. The scholar is among the top 100 of the most prominent Bulgarians who made the largest contribution to the country’s development, as well as among the top 100 of the most famous Kharkivites.

“I was fortunate enough to visit several Balkan countries, and I had the feeling that I was in Ukraine. The Ukrainians’ traditions, value system, mentality are similar to those of the Balkan people,” said Volodymyr Kravchenko, stressing the relevance of the conference topic, which creates opportunities for interdisciplinary dialogue and search for new methods of description and analysis.

During the event, Maryn Drynov Prize for Bulgarian and Balkan Studies was awarded to the Associate Professor of the Department of Modern and Recent History of the School of History Dmytro Mykolenko for the monograph “Passion for Stambolov: Bulgarian State-Building in 1895–1920”.

The conference continued its work in breakout sessions. In general, the conference program included over 120 reports by researchers from 10 countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Macedonia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Romania, Hungary, as well as from 12 cities of Ukraine representing academic institutions, classical and pedagogical universities, museums and archives.
