After seven years as the editor-in-chief of EWJUS, I have chosen to step down, effective April 1, 2023. I have been honoured to contribute my scholarly expertise to such a vibrant and meaningful academic venue! I leave the journal in the capable hands of the new editorial team in the CIUS Toronto Office—Serhiy Bilenky (incoming Editor-in-Chief, firstname.lastname@example.org), Tania Stech (a long-standing Book Review Editor and incoming Managing Editor of EWJUS, email@example.com), and Marko Stech (Director of CIUS Press and Scholarly Publications, firstname.lastname@example.org).Read more about Change in Editorship of East/West: Journal of Ukrainian Studies
East/West: Journal of Ukrainian Studies is a scholarly, peer-reviewed, online periodical, publishing original research articles, reviews and review articles.
EWJUS encourages submission in English of previously unpublished work by academics, graduate students, and policymakers. The journal welcomes thematic issues by guest editors and original scholarship presented at conferences; it is open to sponsoring online forums for scholarly debates and exchanges.

The focus and themes of the journal include, but are not limited, to the following: Ukraine and its neighbors; Ukrainian humanities and social sciences in a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective; the Early Modern, Modern, and Contemporary periods; cultural geography and geopolitics; empires, regions, borders and borderlands; dominant and subordinate cultures; collective identities, gender, multiculturalism, nationalism; and the sociocultural foundations of modernization.
