Embracing and Sharing Culture: How the War has Helped Ukrainians Proudly Share Their Identity

In a recent New York Times article, Serena Parekh—Professor of Philosophy, Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion, and friend of the WGSS community—discusses the hardships Ukrainians have previously faced as a result of their nationality and how that has changed since the country’s war with Russia. The piece explores the growing presence of Ukrainian culture in Italy, discussing how Ukrainians are now proudly sharing their heritage.

Many around the world started to admire the courage of Ukrainians who stayed and fought. This in a way changed people’s perception of them from outsiders to Europe to ‘one of us.’
