What are historical regions and whether historians need them: a lecture at the National Museum of Ukrainian History


The National Museum of Ukrainian History invites you to a lecture. What are historical regions and whether they need historians, which will be held on March 3, on Saturday, at 14:00. Everyone has heard about Volhynia and Galicia, Bessarabia and Budzhak, Bukovina and Podillya, Poltava and Slobozhanshchina ... And they also heard about Novorossiyu. What are the names of these historic regions? Is it worth to argue about where their boundaries are? Can you find Novorossiyu in the 21st century, and Galicia in the 14th? What is the region different from the range and the outline? What are cognitive regions and do they cause cognitive dissonance?
