In accordance with our meta agreement to have topic challenges and a later meta agreement to have topic challenges lasting for two months and overlapping by one month, it is time to announce the July–August 2022 topic challenge.

Based on the number of votes (+5), the next topic challenge of the year 2022 will be Ukrainian Literature.


What's a topic challenge?

See the meta posts linked above, and also this main Meta post. In short, during July and August 2022 you are invited to try to read at least one work of Ukrainian literature and ask questions about it.

Participation is not obligatory in any sense, and questions on other works are more than welcome during July and August too; they just won't count as part of this topic challenge.

How can I take part?

By getting hold of the one or more works of Ukrainian literature and asking good questions about it (or them). Questions about these works should be tagged with the name of the author, the name of the work (for book-length works) and either or , depending on the language of the work. We'll keep a list of all such questions in an answer to this meta post.

Below is the presentation originally posted by EJoshuaS - Stand with Ukraine with edits from other users:

In protest of the recent vicious assault on their country.

Scope would be authors who self-identify as Ukrainian (even if writing in a different language), and authors writing in Ukrainian.

Below are a few Ukrainian authors whose works are at least partially available in English:

Update 27.06.2022: Serhiy Zhadan awarded 2022 Peace Prize of the German Book Trade.
