The Petro Jacyk 2024 Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, University Of Manitoba

Apr 25, 2024 | Community, Featured

Initiated in 2021, the objective of the Fellowship is to support one of the most promising junior scholars studying Ukraine/Ukrainian Canadians and thereby to advance understanding of Ukrainian politics, history and society at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies (CUCS). The centre takes pride in serving as a resource hub for those interested in Ukrainian Canadian studies and strengthening the relationships between the university and the greater community.

The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs who will be involved in both research and teaching capacities.

The Fellow will spend most of the Fellowship period at the University of Manitoba, based at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies. The Fellow is expected to complete a year-long research project on any Ukrainian Canadian or Ukrainian topic, culminating in a full, publishable report and present at least two public lectures related to the research. While in tenure at the program, the Fellow will teach one 3-credit course in Ukrainian Canadian Studies or Ukrainian language, culture, politics and will publish at least two newspaper articles at the Ukrainian Winnipeg or other local magazines.

Dr. Oksana Klymenko is the Petro Jacyk 2024 Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies at the University of Manitoba and a Senior Lecturer at the History Department at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.

She was a visiting scholar at Stanford University, the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University, and the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. Her primary research interests concern the Ukrainian history of the 20th century, memory studies, and gender studies.

This year she is working on her research project “Ukrainian Displaced Women in Austria: Activities, Rights and Responsibilities”. The research will present the results of interviews with Ukrainian women who moved to Austria in 2022 due to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Oksana Klymenko will write her paper on this topic and give a public lecture at the University of Manitoba.

Also, this year she will complete her monograph about the production of the “Soviet version” of the history of the Dnipro Hydroelectric Station (DniproHES, Zaporizhzhia) in the 1930s. This study is interdisciplinary and focuses on the Soviet techniques of constructing collective and individual memory, the role of propaganda in USSR of the interwar period, and the formation of the New Man/Woman image.
