Politics, Identity_, Rhonda Hinther and Jim Mochoruk, eds. The Friends of Library and Archives Canada invite you to the launch of _Re-Imagining Ukrainian-Canadians: History, Politics, Identity_. _Re-Imagining Ukrainian-Canadians: History, Politics, Identity_ is a scholarly collection of essays edited by Rhonda Hinther and Jim Mochoruk (University of Toronto Press, March 2011). This volume features the work of Karen Gabert, Lindy A. Ledohowski, Peter Melnycky, Jars Balan, Orest T. Martynowych, Jaroslav Petryshyn, Serge Cipko, Rhonda L. Hinther, Jennifer Anderson, Jim Mochoruk, Andrij Makuch, S. Holyck Hunchuck, and Stacey Zembrzycki. Ukrainian immigrants to Canada have often been portrayed in history as sturdy pioneer farmers cultivating the virgin land of the Canadian west. The essays in this collection challenge this stereotype by examining the varied experiences of Ukrainian-Canadians in their day-to-day roles as writers, intellectuals, national organizers, working-class wage earners, and inhabitants of cities and towns. Collectively, the essays challenge the older, essentialist definition of what it means to be Ukrainian-Canadian. This volume is dedicated to one of the great unsung heroes of Ukrainian-Canadian scholarship: Myron Momryk. In a career spanning four decades, Myron has been a tireless advocate for multicultural history, an LAC archivist and scholar of Ukrainian and Canadian history, and perhaps most important, a mentor to entire generations of scholars of ethnicity in Canada. Without his efforts in acquiring, accessing, and disseminating many new and important archival collections, many of the articles in this book might never have been written. In his retirement, Myron continues to work as an archival researcher at LAC and the Canadian Museum of Civilization. This book launch will take place at: Library and Archives Canada 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa Tuesday, June 7, 2011 5:00 p.m. Rhonda Dr. Rhonda L.
