From May 19-22 2006, the Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage initiated and co-organized — together with the Ukrainian Catholic University — Ukraine’s first all-national symposium on oral history, entitled “Oral History and Sociocultural Change in Times of Transition”. The event was held at the Ukrainian Catholic University in L’viv, Ukraine.
Twenty scholars from all over Ukraine were invited to participate in the work of the symposium. The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Keith Carlson of the University of Saskatchewan's Department of History. Selected papers from this symposium were published by Ukraine’s leading academic journal in history, Україна Модерна (Modern Ukraine), a peer-reviewed journal of modern history written in the Ukrainian language.
