Megan Buskey (2017) has worked at The Wilson Quarterly, the flagship publication of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, where she edited longform journalism and wrote a column that covered trends in scholarly publications. Her reviews, essays, and articles have appeared in outlets including The New York Times Book Review, The New Republic, The Nation, and NPR’s All Things Considered. She is a graduate of the University of Chicago and received an MFA in nonfiction writing from Goucher College in July 2017.
For more than a decade, Megan has been traveling to Ukraine and other parts of the former Soviet Union, including a year spent living and studying there as a Fulbright Fellow.
During her Logan Nonfiction Program fellowship, Megan will work on a manuscript that centers on her family’s experience in Ukraine during and after World War II. In her writing she uses archival materials, interviews, and personal narrative to trace the path of her forbearers during the war, and explores the implications of their embrace of a radical strain of Ukrainian nationalism that resulted in exile to Siberia.
