IVAN OHIENKO AND MEDIEVAL UKRAINIAN STUDIES: HIS TOPICS, APPROACHES AND INFLUENCE
November 16th, 2017 (Thursday) at 4pm Ivan Ohienko had a strong interest in medieval Ukrainian studies during his entire life. This field gave him a chance to employ all his talents as a linguist, historian, palaeographer and translator to explore the roots of the Ukrainian culture, elucidate its traits and prompt others to learn and preserve our past. The lecture dwells upon the many topics considered by Ivan Ohienko, his approaches and principles and the influence he made in this domain, in particular drawing upon his Winnipeg experience.
Dr. Olena Vdovyna focuses on medieval Ukrainian studies. She earned her PhD from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in 2004 under Prof. Vilen Horskyi. At the completion of her degree she was employed with the Hryhoriy Skovoroda Institute of Philosophy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and taught several courses such as Philosophy and Cultural Studies. Dr. Vdovyna is currently a Mymka visiting research scholar at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies.
