1.Osvita in Ukrainian lands

  • What are the specific features of education in the Ukrainian lands in the early century?
  • What were the main types of schools?
  • What issues remained unresolved education?

Contents, form, stylistic change in the culture depends not only on evolution of art, they are closely related to all aspects of the life society, with special features and patterns of historical process in whole. In the early twentieth century. social life becomes more and more rice mass that determines the concentration of labor in the economy and formation of massive social and political movements in the political sphere. Progressive social and economic differentiation causes an increase politicization of public life, the emergence of the historical political scene parties are actively vying for power. All these processes of world supplemented by specific scale and largely unfavorable conditions in which developing Ukrainian culture.

What impact do you think, committed to promoting a culture of each of these conditions?

The process of modernizing the economy and society in general in the early twentieth Art. require improving the cultural and educational level of population training qualified personnel for industry and agriculture economy. These requirements caused the first increase in schools. Only bank Ukraine from the late nineteenth century. to  1911 the number of primary schools for children of workers and peasants increased by 40%. Increased network of trade schools and schools mining and commercial schools, where trained personnel for industry and trade. Number of schools in Dnieper Ukraine has reached 129 (52 men and 77 women).

It was opened on 8 Teachers' Institute, 10 seminaries. Higher education provided by three universities: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Novorossiysk  (Odessa), Institute of History and Philology Nezhine (in 1875 converted from the Lyceum), Polytechnic Institute in Kiev (1898) Technology and Veterinary Institute, women's higher rates (1907) Women's Medical Institute (1910) in Kharkov Mining Institute (1912 ) in Yekaterinoslav (1912) and others. Worked for more than 140 libraries population.

In 1914-1915 he was the Dnieper in 452 secondary schools operated in which trained 140 thousand students and 19 universities, with 26.7 thousand students. In 1917 higher education was already 27 and in They studied 35 thousand students.

However, the general level of education was unsatisfactory. Not was a sufficient number of schools, and those that were not covered in the children's needs school age. In particular, the 1000 population in primary, incomplete middle and high schools enrolled only 67 students. Thus, in the Kyiv region Volhynia and Podolia, which belonged to the Kyiv School district, not zemstva was, but because there was no county schools, and only a few ministerial or church parish school.

However, the county areas are not all was well. For example,  1900 in Vorzelskomu county in Chernihiv on the soul 153 022 population  were 57 primary schools with 5643 pupils, remained outside of school 3835 children. Only in 1909-1912 he developed the overall implementation plan primary education in the Russian Ukraine, up to ten years.  

Map. Literacy of the population of the Ukrainian lands

1. What conclusions can be drawn from data on the map? 2. How can we explain this great difference between regions?


It is clear that the percentage of literate people was different in different provinces. In 1910 in Ukraine the level of literacy of the population was below  average for the entire European part of Russian Empire index -  30%.

Education nabuvalasya exclusively Russian. Throughout Russian Ukraine there was no institution with the Ukrainian language of instruction, no Ukrainian schools in the state hold. Correspondent of "Council" in 1913 bitterly reported that those teachers who want schools to teach in Ukrainian, is called fans. A trustee of the Kyiv School district general Derevytskyy P.  banned in schools hang portraits of Ukrainian writers to "Black" list includes Shevchenko, Korolenko et al. Not native to  Russian Ukrainian children perceived difficult, often indication to low performance.

Let us turn to sources

From the article Ukrainian teacher and writer Vasyl'chenka S. (1911)

School stepchild of language, alien in spirit only by great teachers misunderstanding might be called folk?. entirely clear why our people look at my school basically as a path to the various positions  or, as they say, to "light bread" and not as an institution which should  serve their very first spiritual needs. Only after that, if sounded in our schools and our native language? all would become clear that through our people "double-illiterate"

What is it about the document? How the author of the document Ukrainian treated schools teaching in Russian? Why S. Vasilchenko Ukrainian people call "double-illiterate"?

Something was in better shape education in Western Ukraine especially in Galicia. During law school here there were two types of schools: lower - and higher rural - urban. U1900, in eastern Galicia 4250 classes worked with the Polish language of instruction, 2250 - Ukrainian language. At the same time from 6240 villages in Galicia in 981 villages had no schools. Secondary schools throughout Galicia there were 49, and only four of these studies was conducted in Ukrainian.

On the eve of the First World War in Galicia there were already 3500 Ukrainian elementary schools where teaching was conducted in their native language. Of 86 gymnasiums in Galicia was only 6 public and 15 private institutions were run by Ukrainian companies and educational Uniate  church and were teaching in Ukrainian.

In Bukovina worked in 1900, six middle schools and no Ukrainian language. In 1913 the 13 public and private schools, only 2 were Ukrainian and 2 - in German and Ukrainian language learning. In South Bukovina there were 305 primary schools. The worst situation was in our region. In all four secondary education institutions was only in Hungarian. In Western Ukraine, there were 4 higher education institutions, of which 3 in  Lviv (University, Polytechnic Institute and Academy of Veterinary medicine for the Polish studies) and University of Euro - with German language.

Thus, throughout the territory of Ukraine there was no university establishment of Ukrainian language teaching, no Ukrainian schools that was to be supported by the state. Even after the Revolution, 1905-1907 tsarism he never gave permission for the introduction of instruction in schools Ukraine language.

2. The development of science and technology. Prominent Ukrainian scientists

  • What are the achievements of Ukrainian scientists testified to the development of science and technology?
  • What science evolved most efficiently?
  • Do you think why these?

Economic and social needs of society modernized, greatly accelerated the development of national science and technology. A number of scientific and technological achievements showed a high level of engineering. Most research has been closely associated with production.

Meet near

Michael Kurako (1872-1920) entered the Metallurgical Plant in Kramatorsk in 1902 at the invitation Managing Director. You trusted him "rozkozlennya" and improvement  factory blast furnaces ("asshole" - frozen in the blast furnace metal - very serious accident). M.

Progress in aeronautics promoted technical progress of aviation. In 1912 in the Odessa Club and workshops were built about twenty  airplanes different systems. Later, on the basis of this workshop arose Aviation Plant. A number of aircraft of its own design built Member Kharkiv flying club, aviation designer S. Gryzodubovoi.

Intensive construction of new designs of aircraft, helicopters and planes developed in Kiev at the Kiev Society aeronautics (1907-1916 biennium), one of the most active in the country. It started its operations here D. G. - designer of the first  world seaplane (1912), I. Sikorsky - the world's first designer multi-engined aircraft (1912-1914). Hereditary worker Kiev "Arsenal" plant F. Anders in 1911 built the airship "Kyiv" original design, which this year made the first experimental flights.

Outside of Kyiv out: "sheaf" in Kharkov, "the morning star" in the grave on the tail, "life and knowledge" Poltava, "Kanev Sunday", "Dnipro waves in Yekaterynoslav.

One of the first Ukrainian newspaper became a daily "Public opinion" The first issue which came out December 31, 1905 Unfortunately, it was destined to be  short-lived: on the night of August 18, 1906 at the wording of the police vandalized, arrested eleven people.

The role of the then Ukrainian press invaluable. As then a kind of chronicler of life at the risk of incur the wrath  disgrace and the government (which is not true of Russian-language press), overcoming various (mostly - artificial) barriers, she consistently opposed to anti-Ukrainian campaign, which reached a peak in the years 1913-1914, with dignity reflected the chauvinistic attacks, supported the spirit of national conscious Ukrainian.

Makovey, Kobylyanska,  working-class poet sockdolager P., S. Vasylchenko, V. Stefanik, L. Martovycha, Cheremshyny M. et al. In his writings, these authors depicted the realities Ukrainian life, the tensions of revolutionary and liberation struggle Ukrainian people, angrily branded disgrace and reactionary the ruling regimes of Austria-Hungary and Russia, thus responding to needs of the reader, which, by accurate observation of the Western writer Osip Makovey Democrat (and he meant readers all Ukraine), "already nadoyily: 1) the theme of the past, written" to fool Styles 2) of the life of the people, processed by the old ethnographic manner.  M. Kotsyubynsky urged the writers to develop the theme "Philosophical, social, psychological, historical and other, not limited to describing the life of the peasantry, but also pay attention "to other groups  community, the intelligentsia, factory workers, military, world artistic, etc... "

At this time in the cultural field okreslylysya clearly two trends - preservation of national cultural identity (populism) and transplantation on Ukrainian soil samples of the newest European Artistic Expressions (modernism *). Synteznoyu characteristic model populism and modernism became the "new school" of Ukrainian prose (Kotsyubyns'kyi V. Stefanik, A. Kobylyanskaya, M. Cheremshina), which in its works seamlessly combined traditional national literature etnohrafizm, first-person narrative with the latest European achievements - * symbolism and psychoanalysis. A characteristic feature of Ukrainian version of modernism in literature was a significant effect * Romanticism, which is explained as a tradition and mentality Ukrainian people, to which romanticism is an organic element outlook any day.

Despite the ban, developing Ukrainian art, especially music and theater. The leading role belonged to the musical life of Lysenko in musical heritage of which there are many works on texts by Ivan Franko, Taras Shevchenko, Ukrainian Lesya, Heinrich Heine and other poets, hundreds of arrangements of Ukrainian folk songs that have great artistic value. Many of them composer's life and did not see the world. In particular, despite exactions advanced society, royal authorities did not authorize statement on the historical and heroic opera Lysenko "Taras Bulba" - masterpiece  Ukrainian opera classics. They opposed scenic performance and other works.

CD / part of Ukrainian artists continued to work in realistic manner. Among them, a talented painter, critic and public figure of revolutionary democratic direction I. Trush (author landscape paintings, portraits of prominent figures of the Ukrainian democratic Culture Ivan Franko, Lesia Ukrainian, V. Stefanik, Lysenko and others.

The Art of M. choices, O. Murashka and artists P. Levchenko, M. Samokish, M. Yarovogo, K. Kostandi not only enriched domestic painting new achievements, but also brought it to Europe level.

In Ukrainian sculpture early twentieth century., In the words of D. Antonovich, eclecticism ruled *. Plasticity uhodyla classicism of the past, replaced went realism that sought to reflect the effects of real life without pomposity and solemnity. It is in this style of working sculptors Naddniprianshchyna - M. Mikeshin, V. Beklemishev, F. Balavenskyy, M. Gavrilko, L. Posen and Galicia - Viytovych P., G. Kuznevych, R. Lewandowski et al.

However, under the influence of Western art schools formed a cluster Ukrainian sculptors-modernists - Viytovych P. M. Gavrilko, V. Ishchenko, M. Parashchuk et al., Works of inherent contrast svitlotinovi effects and deep psychology. Global star A. Archipenko enriched the language of sculpture of the XX century., Forcing the empty space be organic and very expressive element composition. This unmatched master are "treading a woman," a woman who zachisuyetsya "" Cat Woman "and other works. Visitors to the exhibition not understand why A. Archipenko Sculpture no connection with reality. So  not surprising that occasionally appeared in print the cartoons in which vysmiyuvalas art sculptor. One of them concerned the sculpture "Cat Woman". Cartoonists believed that the heavy hand of chunky women  cat should sit down and thus depicted his squat to the rear Paws with vypuchenymy eyes.
