Part 23: The Ukrainian Nationalist Writer and his Place in Canadian Letters

Description: Audio recorded from CIUS conference.

On 6-8 September 1991, CIUS marked the Ukrainian Canadian centenary with a conference on selected aspects of Ukrainian life in Canada in the years between 1924 and 1951. Coinciding with the release of Orest Martynowych's landmark monograph, Ukrainians in Canada: The Formative Years, 1891-1924, the conference was designed as a first step toward creating a research base for writing the interwar history of Ukrainians in Canada. This period, in contrast to the well-studied pioneer immigration and prairie settlement experience, has received relatively little scholarly attention, despite it being so critical to both the crystallizing Ukrainian Canadian community and ongoing integration into Canadian life. Accordingly, it was CIUS’s plan to attract papers on as wide an array of topics as possible, avoiding broad generalities in favour of more limited but illuminating profiles and case studies.

In this recording Mary Shcherba a private scholar from Pointe Claire Quebec, speaks on the Ukrainian nationalist writer and his place in Canadian letters.

A question period for Mary Shcherba and for the previous speaker, Bohdan Nebesio, follow the presentation at 15:25 in the audio.
