“Chernobyl” real/unreal within ecocritical studies: the transformation of a soviet city into a digital zone

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

30-year experience of studying “Chernobyl narration” as a literary response to the explosion at Chernobyl nuclear energy plant (26 April, 1986) reveals that Chernobyl as a real urban Soviet City transferred into the amalgamation of its symbolic images such as a symbol of “Human-Nature” battle, an huge piece of abundant urban area, a Nature’s domination, a protector from “peaceful atom”, a tomb of the Soviet regime, a lost paradise, self-destroying science, a part of “private historical memory”, an unhealthy fascination (by A. Korzeniowska-Bihun), and even as a litmus test that shows the attitude of the authorities towards their own society both in the 1980s and even in the time before Ukrainian Maydan 2013/2014, followed by the military events.
