Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the mainstream issues of contemporary Franko Studies, one of the most important fields of Ukrainian Literary Studies. The contemporary Franko Studies includes different discourses (political, sociological, linguistic, and literary), each of which reflects the topical problems of Ukrainian Studies in a widest sense. Many controversial topics (starting with Franko’s meeting/non-meeting with Theodor Herzl in Vienna, Franko’s article “A Poet of Betrayal” and on to Franko’s attitude towards Ukrainian and European modernism) receive nowadays a different interpretation, which is not exhaustive but, on the contrary, initiating the study of another problem. The author also comments on the literary terminology used within the Franko Studies.
