  1. Timothy Snyder: The Making of Modern Ukraine. Class 6: The Grand Duchy of Lithuania

    Class 6 continues the foundations of the Kyiv state at a time when Lithuania was much larger than most people think.

    Timothy Snyder is the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. He speaks five and reads ten European languages.

    Ukraine must have existed as a society and polity on 23 February 2022, else Ukrainians would not have collectively resisted Russian invasion the next day. What does it mean for a nation to exist? Is this a matter of structures, actions, or both? Why has the existence of Ukraine occasioned such controversy? In what ways are Polish, Russian, and Jewish self-understanding dependent upon experiences in Ukraine? Just how and when did a modern Ukrainian nation emerge? For that matter, how does any modern nation emerge? Why some and not others? Can nations be chosen, and can choices be decisive? If so, whose, and how? Ukraine was the country most touched by Soviet and Nazi terror: what can we learn about those systems, then, from Ukraine? Is the post-colonial, multilingual Ukrainian nation a holdover from the past, or does it hold some promise for the future?

  4. Mit Peter Handke in die Moralisierungsfalle? | Gespräch | Sternstunde Philosophie | SRF Kultur

    Die Frage nach der Moral nimmt in der Beurteilung von Kunst, Kultur und Politik einen immer grösseren Raum ein. Jüngstes Beispiel: Der Literaturnobelpreis 2019 geht an den österreichischen Schriftsteller Peter Handke. Seit der Verkündung wird die Kritik an der Entscheidung der Jury immer lauter und drängt Worte des Lobes zunehmend zurück. Hauptstreitpunkt ist Handkes Parteinahme für die serbischen Nationalisten während der Jugoslawien-Kriege in den 1990er-Jahren, die ihn nun des Nobelpreises nicht würdig erscheinen lässt.

    In Museen werden Werke wie z.B. jene von Balthus weggehängt, weil sie anstössig wirken. Kinderbücher verschwinden aus den Schulzimmern, weil sie als rassistisch beurteilt werden. Und im Namen der Emanzipation wird die Sprache zum zentralen Kampfplatz.

    Doch wo liegt die Grenze zwischen moralischen Einwänden und dem Moralisieren? Wie ist es zu erklären, dass heute Progressive auf Moral pochen und sich Konservative dagegen wehren? Die moralisierende Linke: eine plötzlich verkehrte Welt? Und steht mit der allgegenwärtigen ökologischen Frage eine weitere Gesamtmoralisierung unserer Existenz an, weitab einer Utopie eines befreiten Daseins?

    Wolfram Eilenberger diskutiert mit der österreichischen Philosophin Lisz Hirn und dem deutsch-amerikanischen Literaturwissenschaftl…

  5. Zeitfragen – Deutschlandfunkkultur – Rechtsterrorismus in der Bundesrepublik. Verdrängte Vergangenheit?

    Hepp-Kexel-Gruppe, Aktion Widerstand, Ekkehard Weil, "Bombenhirn" Naumann, - kaum jemand kennt diese Namen. Auch den verantwortlichen Politikern ging es wohl so, als 2011 der NSU aufflog. Dabei gab es in der Bundesrepublik seit den 1960er-Jahren Terrorakte von Rechtsextremisten.
