Dmytro Yesypenko

Currently, I am a Research Fellow at Taras Shevchenko Institute of Literature of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The area of my specialization and interests includes issues of textual scholarship and scholarly editing (digital editing as well), literary source studies and book history, Ukrainian historical and literary process of the 19th – early 20th centuries. During the years 2008-2017 my monograph on Ukrainian novelist Borys Hrinchenko and number of articles about the phenomena of Ukrainian historical and literary process have been published. Also, I prepared for publication in scholarly journals few literary texts and archival documents.

In the years 2012-2018 I participated in several research projects funded by Ukrainian, Australian and Slovak research councils. My tasks there included writing of scholarly papers, archival and library research as well as organizing and participating in academic activities (conferences, seminars, workshops etc.). I had a pleasure to experience bilateral and multilateral cooperation with many colleagues from different research centers of Europe, North America, and Australia. Particularly, I was a consultant of actors on the HORIZON 2020 funded COURAGE project, devoted to the cultural heritage of dissent in the former socialist countries. At the moment jointly with colleagues from the Monash University and the University of Victoria as editors, we are preparing an extensive collection of about 50 papers in the field of Ukrainian and Slavic studies written by the authors from all over the world.
