The competition aims to award the best scientific works on Ukrainian studies and literary works of various genres written in Ukrainian or English.
It is worth noting that under the terms of the competition there were evaluated works that first appeared in print in 2020 (not reprinted). Professor Ivan Monolatiy, in particular, was awarded with the prize for his book “Defeated Grief. Mnemonic figures of stateless literature”. In the book, the author highlights “mnemonic figures” – literary images, through the prism of which Ukrainian writers of the 1930s-1980s, both from Soviet Ukraine and from the diaspora, described the Ukrainian historic experience of the XX century. The book has got eleven chapters that represent eleven pairs of “mnemonic figures” of Ukrainian literature, selected by the theme and time of writing prose works.
