  4. For my research paper, I chose a very important and interesting topic about cultural stereotypes of the two genetically related nations: Ukrainians and Russian. Accordingly, the working title for my research paper is “Two Brothers? Cultural Stereotypes and Labeling of Ukrainians vs. Russians”. Most people think of another culture or nation based on the stereotypes they have acquired from their ancestors. It happens even that some peoples introduce their own labels about themselves to improve their status or image and share their history with other peoples with the help of such labels. It is interesting to explore how people without a prior knowledge about the culture of Ukrainians or Russians can judge them and draw conclusions about how these peoples lived and interacted with each other.
    The aim for my research paper is not only to find stereotypes referring to Russians and Ukrainians but also to analyze those stereotypes and ascertain their origin and their current status in the system of relations between the two peoples. The second goal for my project is to find the relationship between those two nations, based on the current situation in those countries. The Russia has begun using liberally ethnic stereotyping and political labeling with regard to Ukraine and its people, their national heroes, ‘myths’, and cultural values.
    For the first part of me research, I have been using our library’s resources to find basic information about stereotyping, not only for those two nations but also in the recent scholarship dealing with this problem. It is of importance also to understand what makes people to create clichés about other nations, and pass them from generation to generation. I found interesting scholarly articles dealing with the topic chosen for my research, e.g., “The politics of ethnicity: Russians in the New Ukraine” by Ian Bremmer (1994), “Measuring stereotypes: a comparison of methods using Russian and American samples” by Walter Stephan and Tatyana Stefanenko (1993), and some others. The library gave me some basic information on stereotyping, but I found examples that are more specific by using internet sources: jstore and google scholar.
    I plan to further investigate ethnic and cultural differences between the Ukrainian and Russian peoples viewed through a prism of cultural stereotypes, clichés, and political labeling. I will create a list of labels that are used for the Ukrainian people and base my search on the choice of those labels and clichés. For more information on the historic meaning and provenance of the ethnic stereotypes I will use the NY public library, in which I can get access to rare journals and old history books. Articles from the newspapers like Washington Post, The New York Times and Boston Globe can help me with examples and updates on the current situation in those countries.
