New Plans, Read My World, and Digital Collections

The Center for Ukrainian Cultural Studies starts a short summer leave this month. After the summer, we will back with new events -- which include plans for meetings devoted to Ukrainian cultural and literary history and possibly new film screenings. In the meantime, we share two relevant weblinks for those of you with an interest in Ukrainian Literature:
1. Read My World hosts a festival devoted to Polish and Ukrainian Literature at Amsterdam's Tolhuistuin next October. The festival promises much good -- but its site, which contains short profiles of the four participating Ukrainian authors, including photos and key prose/poetry titles, is worth a look, too.
2. On this site, you find open-access digital collections devoted to Ukrainian sources. They include electronic versions of rare print manuscripts, the Digital Archive of the Ukrainian Famine, but also a Ukrainian Poetry Library. Most are in Ukrainian, but some includes translations.
Until more after summer!
