This course introduces students to Ukrainian Canadian culture and ethnicity from the perspective of ethnic and diaspora studies. Examining cultural practices and heritage of Ukrainians in Canada, we will look at Ukrainian Canadian community development and early settlers? spiritual and material culture. We will discuss major social cultural changes in the community life of Ukrainian Canadians as they were taking place throughout the last century and place those in broader historical context. To deal with the questions of cultural vitality, continuity and change, we will look at Ukrainian Canadian folklore and ?high? art as cultural practice and analyze the relationship between cultural heritage, cultural practice, and ethnic identity of Ukrainians in Canada.
