Iryna Skubii


Under the supervision of Dr. Rebecca Manley, in her doctorate dissertation Iryna Skubii will explore the consumption as a survival practice in the midst of the famines and wars in the first half of the twentieth century in Ukrainian lands. Her research aims to recast the history of this period and famines in particular through the prism of things and person-things relationships, as well as it will allow rethinking of the meanings of food, things, and natural resources during extraordinary periods.
