Historique

The Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives (BMUFA) is the repository of Ukrainian and Canadian-Ukrainian folklore materials. It studies, documents, acquires, and preserves Ukrainian vernacular culture in Ukraine, Canada, and around the world as it changes over time, and makes it available to researchers and the public. The Ukrainian Folklore Archives were founded in 1977 when Bohdan Medwidsky assembled students' fieldwork projects from his first course on Ukrainian folklore. Dr. Medwidsky's vision is the development of a rich, vibrant and lasting resource for the study of diverse Ukrainian traditions.

Dr. Bohdan Medwidsky was born in Ukraine and spent his youth in Switzerland and Toronto. He joined the University of Alberta faculty in 1971, where he has been the driving force in developing the Kule Folklore Centre, degree programs in the field, and many community-based projects promoting Ukrainian culture. The Ukrainian Folklore Archives were renamed the Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives in 2003 to honour Dr. Medwidsky.

The BMUFA is part of the Peter and Doris Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore (Kule Folklore Centre) at the University of Alberta.
