CIUS oral history project

  • CA BMUFA 0021
  • Collection
  • 1982-1984

Oral History Project was implemented by the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies in 1982-1984. During that period of time two researchers -- Lubomyr Luciuk and Zenon Zwarycz -- interviewed more than 135 members of the Ukrainian community all over Canada, both immigrants and those already born in Canada. The interviews were digitized in 2014-2016 producing a database of over 400 sound files. The interviews focus on the Ukrainian organizational life both in the Old Country and Canada, as well as political and/or social activities of the interviewees. They also encompass childhood and formative years of each interviewee, their education, family stories, participation in the Ukrainian War of Independence, WWI, routes of emigration to Canada, patterns of settlement within Canada, relations with a broader Canadian society; WWII, DPs, Ukrainian-Canadian institutions, prominent personalities, as well as the religious and political mosaic inside the Ukrainian community in Canada.

Canadian Ukrainian dance competitions project

  • CA BMUFA 0028
  • Collection
  • 1996-2002

This project was the core fieldwork collection phase of Jason Golinowski's master thesis.

A dozen or more dance competitions are organized in western Canada which include or focus exclusively on Ukrainian dance, with an estimated total of some 8000 entries per year in recent years. The number of competitions and competitors has risen significantly in the past five years. This increase in popularity raises numerous questions regarding the functioning of "ethnic" cultural activities in this country. Various theories explaining "ethnic persistence" and "ethnic revival" have been proposed. The present project is designed to develop an empirical base of data to test aspects of these conceptual models.

The project consists of asking competition organizers for competition programs and marks through their histories, information which is quite readily available to these committees. A detailed database of the competitors, their home group, instructors, their marks and placements, adjudicators, repertoire and other information will allow an analysis of behavior trends that will shed light into the functions of the competitions and the motivations of the various categories of participants.

This project is relatively self-contained and has been proposed as a Master's thesis by Jason Golinowski in the Ukrainian Folklore Program in the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Studies. It is also connected to a larger study conducted by Dr. Andriy Nahachewsky, dealing with "new ethnicity" and Canadian Ukrainian dance.
