Administrative history

Le but principle du projet Culture Locale et Diversité sur les Prairies était de documenter la vie de tous les jour des Canadiens Français, Allemands, Anglais, et Ukrainiens qui vivent dans les prairies depuis 1939 et avant. Le projet a pris trois ans de recherche sur terrain et approximativement 800 heures d'entrevue audio, 20 vidéos, et 850 photos, et un ensemble de données qui peuvent être explorés pour plusieurs thèmes. En plus d'héritage français, allemands, anglais, et ukrainiens, les informateurs désignent leurs origines ethniques comme étant autrichiennes, croates, tchécoslovaques, danoises, néerlandaises, premières nations, hongroises, islandais, irlandais, juives, libanaises, métisses, norvégiennes, polonaises, roumaines, russes, écossaises, slovaques, suédoises, galloises, en plus d'origines de groupes religieux comme les mennonites et mormones.

The main goal of the Local Culture and Diversity on the Prairies project was to document the everyday lives of ordinary French, German, English and Ukrainian Canadians living on the Prairies prior to 1939. It took three years of intense fieldwork research and resulted in approximately 800 hours of audio interviews, 20 videos, and 850 photos, a rich data corpus that can be mined for a multitude of themes. Aside from French, German, English, and Ukrainian ancestry, interviewees identified their ethnic background as Austrian, Croatian, Czechoslovakian, Danish, Dutch, First Nations, Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish, Jewish, Lebanese, Metis, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Scottish, Slovak, Swedish, Welsh, as well as coming from the Mennonite and Mormon faith groups.

Custodial history

Ce fonds fut acquis par les Archives de l'Université de l'Alberta (UAA) de la part des Archives Saint-Jean, anciennement situé au Campus Saint-Jean de l'Université de l'Alberta. Le but principal des Archives Saint-Jean était de préserver le matériel archivistique qui avait déjà été acquis au fil des ans par l'ancien IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) et ensuite par l’ancien IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).

This fonds was acquired by the University of Alberta Archives in 2019 from the Archives Saint-Jean that was previously housed at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. The Archives Saint-Jean’s main goal was to preserve archival materials that had already been acquired by the IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) and subsequently by IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).
