HREC established a partnership in 2017 with the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine (Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, University of Toronto) to host a visiting scholar in Holodomor studies annually. The HREC Visiting Scholar has access to the university’s rich library resources and to the archives of the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre, which include unpublished eyewitness accounts and survivor interviews. HREC also facilitates meetings with colleagues in the genocide studies community.
Visiting Scholar in Holodomor Studies Petro Jacyk Program, CERES, University of Toronto / HREC
Applications are being accepted for the visiting scholars program through the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine at the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES), the University of Toronto for the 2021-2022 academic year. Successful applicants will conduct research and interact with Canadian scholars during their stay at CERES. They will also be invited to give a presentation on the topic of their research and are expected to take part in relevant scholarly events. As a rule, engagements will be scheduled during the fall and winter sessions, that is, between September and April. Each year the Petro Jacyk Program—in partnership with the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC)—may support one scholar whose research relates to the Holodomor. Successful applicants benefit from interaction with not only scholars in the University of Toronto community but also those involved in HREC projects. They have access to the archives of the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre, where HREC is located (a ten-minute walk from CERES), including unpublished eyewitness accounts of the Holodomor, as well as the extensive Holodomor microfilm collection from the Central State Archive of Popular Organizations (Kyiv) at the University of Toronto Library.
