Notice biographique

Dr. Myroslav Shkandrij was a Professor in the Department of German and Slavic Studies, University of Manitoba. He was born on March 17, 1950, in Leeds, England. Dr. Shkandrij studied at Cambridge University (B.A.,1972) and the University of Toronto, where he studied with George Luckyj and received an M.A. (1973) and a Ph.D. (1980). He taught at the Universities of Calgary and Ottawa during the 1980s. Between 1977 and 1987, he was on the editorial board of Diyaloh, a journal of the young generation of Ukrainians in the West, and he was active in the Ukrainian Canadian University Students Union (SUSK). The journal was published three times per year. The Ukrainian Student Group smuggled issues of their publication to Ukraine during the Cold War. During those years, Dr. Shkandrij served on the Committee in Defense of Soviet Political Prisoners and many other Ukrainian institutions and organizations in Canada (CIUS, KUK).

In 2001, Dr. Shkandrij organized the first North American exhibition devoted to the Ukrainian Avant-Garde art, “Phenomenon of the Ukrainian Avant-Garde”. It covered the period from the 1910’s through 1930’s. As a curator for the Winnipeg Art Gallery and in cooperation with the National Art Museum of Ukraine, he introduced to Winnipeg the Ukrainian Avant-Garde art hidden during the Stalinist years. Artists such as David Burliuk, Mykhailo Boichuk, Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Archipenko and others represented modern trends in art such as Cubism, Futurism or Constructivism. Dr. Shkandrij researched the life and art of David Burliuk and organized another exhibit for the Winnipeg Art Gallery in 2008 - “Futurism and After: David Burliuk, 1882-1967”.

Dr. Shkandrij is the author of more than 50 journal articles and book chapters and 6 major monographs: Modernists, Marxists and the Nation: The Ukrainian Literary Discussion of the 1920s (Edmonton: CIUS Press, University of Alberta, 1992); Russia and Ukraine: Literature and the Discourse of Empire From Napoleonic to Postcolonial Times (McGill-Queen's UP, 2001); Jews in Ukrainian Literature: Representation and Identity (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2009); Ukrainian Nationalism: Politics, Ideology and Literature, 1929-1956 (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2015); Avant-garde Art in Ukraine: Contested Memory, 1910-1930 (Boston: Academic Studies Press, 2019); and Revolutionary Ukraine, 1917-2017: Flashpoints in History and Contemporary Memory Wars (New York: Routledge, 2019). He has also translated several books from Ukrainian into English and edited or co-edited 6 volumes.

Dr. Shkandrij is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies and the Canadian Association of Slavists. He taught in the Department of German and Slavic Studies at the University of Manitoba from 1987until 2019, and served as Head or Acting Head of the Department from 1990 to 2009. In 2010, he received the Faculty of Arts Professor of the Year award. Upon his retirement in 2019, he was named Professor Emeritus.
