Oral History of Decollectivization in Ukraine in the 1990s: Rural Perspectives and Experiences was conducted in Ukraine from 2007 – 2009 with the support of the PCUH. The project focused on post-socialist transformation of rural society in Ukraine, and on collective farm workers’ lives under the socialism and after. 170 in-depth interviews were recorded across Ukraine in ten regions (Crimean Republic, Dnipropetrovska Oblast, Kyivska Oblast, Lvivska Oblast, Odeska Oblast, Mykolaivska Oblast, Rivnenska Oblast, Ternopilska Oblast and Kharkivska Oblast).
The project was conducted in Ukraine in partnership with the Ukrainian Association of Oral History, as well as several academic research centres where oral historical work is actively pursued: the Deparment of History of Ukraine, Poltava State Pedagogical University (Prof. Yuri Voloshyn); the Department of Ukrainian Studies, Kharkiv National University (Prof. Gelinada Hrinchenko); the Oral History Centre, Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyj State Pedagogical University (Taras Nahajko); the Department of History, National University Kyiv Mohyla Academy (Prof. Natalia Shlikhta); the Department of History and Theory of Sociology, Lviv National University (Prof. Tetiana Lapan); and the Department of Archeology and Ethnology, Odesa National University (Prof. Oleksandr Prigarin).
