Graduate program in Ukrainian Folklore
If you are interested in studying Ukrainian Canadian or other Ukrainian diaspora folklore and folklife on a Master or PhD level, the University of Alberta is the best place for that. Students have the choice of focusing on variety of topics: oral verbal traditions, material culture, ritual and belief, folk arts and performance genres. You can get a good idea of the range of topics by looking at the theses and dissertations by our graduate students. In the coming years the Kule Folklore Centre will focus on the study of folklore narratives in popular culture (led by Dr. Natalie Kononenko), immigration narratives, music and dance (led by Dr. Andriy Nahachewsky); visual aspects of popular and religious culture, in particular Ukrainian icons and iconostases in Canada (led by Dr. Natalie Kononenko and Dr. Jelena Pogosjan); folklore archiving, database building and management (Dr. Natalie Kononenko and Dr. Andriy Nahachewsky).
