Webinar - Displaced Writers, Diasporic Readers

24 February 2023


"Displaced Writers, Diasporic Readers:
A Bibliography of Ukrainian Children’s Literature from 1945 to 2021"

A webinar with children's author Lesia Savedchuk

The post-WWII Ukrainian diaspora was responsible for the publication of a sizeable body of Ukrainian-language children’s literature, which played an important role in helping to maintain national identity in the émigré community. With the support of the Ukrainian Language Education Centre and the Toronto Ukrainian Library Association, these publications are in the process of being compiled into a comprehensive annotated bibliography. In this talk, the presenter will discuss the project, its progress, highlights, and challenges, and will overview some of the literature's themes and their potential for elaboration by future scholars.
