Viktoriia Myronenko, PhD, is Associate Professor of Department of Cinematography at The Kyiv National K. Karpenko-Kary Theatre, Cinema and Television University (Kyiv, Ukraine). She completed her PhD at National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture with her doctoral project titled “Peculiar traits of Photography in Kyiv of the Independence Epoch”. Currently, a full-time faculty member, she developed the lecture courses: History of Photography, Contexts of Photography and History of Ukrainian Photography.  Viktoriia Myronenko is an art historian with research interests in the history of Ukrainian photography and photography of Soviet and post-Soviet era in Ukraine. She is equally interested in the question of the intersections of gender and sexuality in visual culture of Ukraine. For five years, she worked as a researcher in the cross-disciplinary project Fragile Memory, the basis of which was the photo archive of Ukrainian cinematographer Leonid Burlaka. She is a member of the editorial team and the introductory article author of the books Ukrainian Erotic (Osnovy Publishing, 2017), Poo-tee-weet? Photography of War: Issue 1 (Osnovy Publishing, 2015).

Her current research project, Visual Propaganda During the War:  Methods of Nazi Germany and Contemporary Russia raises a number of pertinent questions. On the one hand, it deals with the history of photography and propaganda in Nazi Germany during World War II.  But on the other hand, in light of Russia’s full-scale invasion of independent Ukraine, the analysis and comparison of the methods of visual propaganda of Nazi Germany and contemporary Russia becomes an important aspect of the research.
