How does the symbolic space of the city change during different ages and what is the process
associated with it?

Prof. Polina Verbytska is a member and expert of a number of international networks (Council of Europe,
EUROCLIO, George Eckert Institute, ICOM, International Society for History Didactics).
Her fields of research include historical memory, cultural heritage and civic education.

The city is an important and interesting object of studying social and cultural changes in
Ukraine. The purpose of the lecture, based on the theoretical and methodological
provisions of social and environmental psychology, urban semiotics, communication theory
and the concept of collective memory, is to analyze how different ideologies and political
powers create, change and affect the physical and symbolic image of the city.
