The Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine
Established in 2001, with the support of Peter Jacyk and the Education Foundation, the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine focuses on contemporary Ukraine as well as its history and culture. The program actively encourages scholars in Ukrainian studies at the University of Toronto and Ukrainianists at other North American institutions to develop joint projects, and facilitates the study of Ukraine by organizing workshops, conferences, lectures and seminars.
The Petro Jacyk Central and East European Resource Centre
Located at the University of Toronto, Canada’s largest University, the Petro Jacyk Resource Centre at Robarts Library provides a centralized location for more than 2000 reference volumes in 20 languages and special collections in paper and microfilm. Specialist staff provides reference service and instruction, produces printed and online research, hosts workshops and seminars. The Center was established in March 1995 and supports activities of the Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (CERES) and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literature.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society
Initiated in 2008, the objective of the Fellowship is to support the most junior promising scholars studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby advance academic understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs who would be involved in both research and teaching capacities.
The Fellow will spend most of the Fellowship period at the University of Toronto, based at the Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (CERES). While preparing his/her dissertation for publication, the Fellow will participate in activities of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine, including guest lectures, workshops and conferences, and other events. In addition to research, he/she is expected to teach a one semester course that deals with contemporary Ukraine and to spend a period of time in Ukraine conducting research.
