Ukrainians Abroad:
News and Views

Table of Contents

At the beginning of June 2007, the Ukrainian Diaspora Studies Initiative launched an electronic newsletter. Issued about every three weeks, the newsletter brings together recent news stories relating to Ukrainians abroad. It also alerts readers to books and articles that have recently been published on Ukrainian diaspora topics. From time to time in-house translations are conducted of stories that have appeared in such languages as Spanish, Portuguese, and Ukrainian. The material featured in the newsletter is in English, but occasionally readers are directed to articles that have appeared in Ukrainian. (For an article in Ukrainian about the newsletter, see Хроніка української діаспори: інформаційний бюлетень «Українці за кордоном»)
