Administrative history

Peter and Doris Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore is a research institution within the Faculty of Arts, University of Alberta. It is permanently endowed through the generous gifts of Peter and Doris Kule, the Wasyl and Anna Kuryliw family, Erast Huculak, Bohdan Medwidsky and many other visionary community leaders. It was formalized in 2001 and received its current name in 2006, though it is based upon endowments and archives existing since the 1980s.

The centre’s five strategic priorities are to:
» Conduct ground-breaking research in Ukrainian and Canadian folklore studies
» Maintain and grow the Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives
» Support undergraduate and graduate courses in Ukrainian folklore and vernacular culture
» Support researchers and students with scholarships and awards
» Engage with diverse communities through publications, exhibits, lectures, workshops and more.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection consists of photos and video footage from the event of the re-naming and additional gift by Drs. Peter and Doris Kule held in the Timms Centre, University of Alberta on 6 September 2006. Recognizing the contribution Ukrainian folklore plays in the development and preservation of Ukrainian culture and heritage, the Kules made another substantial gift to the University of Alberta in September 2006. To honor the Kules’ vision to see the centre expand and grow as a leading entity, the centre was renamed the Peter and Doris Kule Centre for Ukrainian and Canadian Folklore at a ceremony attended by several dignitaries including Dr. Indira Samarasekera, UofA President, and Dr. Daniel Woolf, Dean of Arts.

With this gift, the Kule Centre Endowment and the Kule Fellowship Endowment was established. Funds from the interest generated from these endowments is used for research projects, scholarships, publications and teaching. The Centre has been able to expand beyond Ukrainian Folklore to include Canadian Folklore studies, filling a much needed resource void in Western Canada.
