      Nationalism was one of the main forces shaping the history of the long twentieth century and is of great relevance in the contemporary world as well. From its beginnings, nationalism has also been an international phenomenon. Despite the claims of national uniqueness or at least peculiarity advanced by nationalists, a history of nationalism as a form of elite and mass politics and a social imaginary cannot be exclusively national but requires comparison and the reconstruction of inter-action. This workshop seeks to contribute to our understanding of the history as well as the present of Ukrainian and Russian forms of nationalism and, in particular, to facilitate comparison as well as a closer analysis and discussion of their inter-action and mutual relationship. Covering the period from the later nineteenth to the early twenty-first centuries, "Entangled Histories" will bring together an international group of scholars for a two-day workshop to discuss
      the following main topics in five panels:
