The Toronto Ukrainian Genealogy Group (TUGG) invites you to come hear Professor Maxim Tarnawsky speak on Canadian Literature depicting Ukrainians in Canada.
Dr. Tarnawsky teaches a course at the University of Toronto Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures called “Literature of the Ukrainian Canadian Experience.”
The purpose of this presentation is to acquaint you with a range of books describing the Canadian Ukrainian experience and to demonstrate the variety of different viewpoints and issues that Canadian authors associate with Ukrainians in this country.
· How were the first Ukrainians in Canada depicted in fiction?
· How Ukrainian are Ukrainians in Canada?
· What are the problems of being Ukrainian in Canada?
· Is being Ukrainian in Canada a bounty or a burden?
· Do Ukrainians write about themselves differently than non-Ukrainians write about them?
These and other questions will be answered in an informal, relaxed setting.
