Ukraine and its experience of several unions with the Roman Catholic Church would be of special interest to comparative religious history.
It could be compared with the cases of Belarus and Romania, which also had Orthodox and Uniate churches, and with the Gregorian and Uniate Armenians. Ukrainian Orthodox and Uniates Greek Catholics should be integrated into the comparative history of confessions and confessionalization in Europe, which is still generally limited to Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the metropolises of St.
Petersburg, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Berlin, and Paris influenced architecture, theater, music, literature, and fashion in Ukraine, while Ukrainians, for their part, took their experience abroad. The transfer of knowledge and science could be another field of research, encompassing not only the impact of Polish, German, Russian and other scholars on Ukrainian universities but also the influence of Ukrainian scholars who emigrated to other countries, from Yepifanii Slavynetsky and Teofan Prokopovych Feofan Prokopovich to Dmytro Chyzhevsky and Omeljan Pritsak.
European and global history are other expanding scholarly fields already established as new subdisciplines of the historical sciences. In an era of globalization we realize how closely interconnected the world is.

These interrelations, however, were already important in earlier periods, as shown by the examples of the Silk Road and the Pax Mongolica or the diffusion of epidemics. The interrelation of various levels of research, from the global to the local, is of crucial importance. On a subnational level, regional transethnic history is an important focus.
This applies to Ukraine, with its various historical regions that do not always coincide with political and ethnic borders but overlap them. All these regions had ethnically mixed populations that cannot be categorized in clear-cut national terms, as witness the inhabitants of Polisia and Podlachia tuteshni, tuteishi, tutejsi, polishchuky , the Donbas donechchany speaking surzhyk , southern Ukraine chornomortsi, novorosiiany , Carpatho-Rusyns and others.
A transnational perspective also involves comparisons between European regions. A comparative approach to the history of frontiers and Cossacks as typical frontiersmen could yield new insights. There could be comparative studies not only of the different Cossack hosts but also of Cossacks and other frontier societies, such as those of the Uskoks and Haiduks on the Habsburg-Ottoman military border, or those on the frontiers of Asia and America.
For example, comparative research projects at the universities of Leipzig and Vienna include Ukrainian towns. This also implies the growing importance of a transnational historiography. Joint international projects would promote multiperspectivity and transnational approaches, while counteracting exclusive ethnonational approaches. It can also be understood as a step toward the creation of a transethnic or transnational history.
For two centuries, historians mostly wrote national histories focusing on ethnic groups, nations and nation-states. By and large they projected their national ideologies onto prenational epochs in which dynastic, social, regional, gender, religious and other identifications and loyalties were usually more important than ethnicity.
Yet ethnonational and multiethnic approaches tend to overestimate ethnic and national forces in history and to give teleological explanations. They should be corrected by a transethnic and transnational historiography appropriate to the era of globalization and European unification.
Other European historiographies needed much more time to develop a postnational and transnational perspective. The time could be ripe for a second phase of multiethnic or even a third step transnational history. All this does not mean that an ethnonational history of Ukraine will be rendered obsolete.
It will serve the belated Ukrainian nation by supplying its adherents with a common past and national myths. Interest in explaining the history of the Ukrainian ethnic group, nation and statehood will persist. Studies of the Ukrainian Cossacks and the Hetmanate, national movements, national ideologies, and national heroes will remain legitimate fields of the historical profession.follow site

But Ukrainian historiography of the twenty-first century needs a diversification of approaches, theories and methods. All this is relevant not only to the historical profession but also to politics. A multiethnic and transnational view of Ukrainian history can help create a civic society based on citizenship and the rule of law, not primarily on Ukrainian ethnicity. The Orange Revolution may have prepared Ukraine for a civic nation-state with a focus on a constitutional and not an ethnic patriotism. Such a reorientation could be an important means of integrating diverse ethnic and regional groups into a civic transethnic Ukrainian nation.
As the elections from to have shown, there are cleavages between the regions of Ukraine, especially between the west, center and north on the one hand and the east and south on the other. This applies not only to political options but also to collective memories. Many citizens of Ukraine will not accept an exclusive ethnonational perspective. Personalities like Ivan Mazepa, Symon Petliura and Stepan Bandera cannot serve as national integrative personalities and myths for many Ukrainians.
Perhaps only Bohdan Khmelnytsky could be an acceptable candidate. But his positive memory is not reconcilable with the negative Jewish and Polish images. Competing and divided historical memories, such as those mentioned at the beginning of this article, are often barriers to mutual understanding, not only between ethnic and regional groups within a state but also between nations and states.
It is therefore important to deal in an open and scholarly manner with all the ghosts of the past that have been praised or blamed in Soviet and Ukrainian national, Russian, Polish, and Jewish historiography. Difficult questions of Ukrainian-Jewish, Ukrainian-Polish and Ukrainian-Russian relations in the times of Khmelnytsky, the Revolution and the Second World War must be investigated from a multiethnic and transnational perspective. This applies not only to Ukraine but also to its relations with its neighbors and with other countries.
Although a united Europe will not destroy ethnic groups and nations, it needs multiethnic and transnational perspectives, as well as citizens who are not blinkered by narrow ethnonational views but prepared to cooperate and listen to other arguments and perspectives.
