The Ukrainian Studies Foundation in Australia Ltd. has granted a sum of $52,000 in 2014 to support the research project “A New History of Modern Ukrainian Literature,” based in the Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies. The grant is the second in a series of three requested over 2013-15. Support commenced in 2013 with an initial grant of $50,000.
The project, proposed by Professor Marko Pavlyshyn, builds upon his earlier projects, one titled “Bilingualism and Multilingualism in a National Movement: Ukrainian Writers in the Nineteenth Century” and funded by the Australian Research Council, the other on the related topic “Language, Literature and the National Project in 19th-century Ukraine,” funded by the Ukrainian Studies Support Fund of the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria and the Ukrainian Studies Foundation in Australia Ltd.
Given that the most recent history of Ukrainian literature to appear in English was that of Dmytro Chyzhevs’kyi (itself the translation of a work that was first published in 1956), the new project has as its objective the production of a literary history of Ukraine that takes into account new research and new directions in literary scholarship.
Additional funding for the project is being sought.
