Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the West Ukrainian People’s Republic. The History of the ZUNR: Differences in Approaches at the Stage of Changing Paradigms in Ukrainian Historiography

Volodymyr Velykochyy


The article analyzes the conceptual changes in historiographical approaches to the phenomenon of the West Ukrainian People’s Republic (the ZUNR), whose centenary is celebrated in 2018. Historiographical sources provide clear evidence of the change in the analytical paradigm: shifting from glorification or a downright defamation to a careful examination of the ZUNR’s achievements and failures; investigating the least-studied aspects of its activity; establishing the role and place of the ZUNR in the history of Ukrainian state building.
