Ethnocultural Voices Series

The MHSO established the Ethnocultural Voices Series published diaries, autobiographies, and reminiscencesto provide a vehicle through which immigrants and their descendants could tell stories of their experiences, aspirations, and achievements in their own voices. According to Professor Robert F. Harney, the series followed the example of the Polish philosopher and sociologist, Florian Znaniecki, who organized “inspired memoirs” for the study of the city of Poznan. The publications in the Ethnocultural Voices Series are listed below. All can be accessed online through the Libraries and Cultural Resources Digital Collections of the University of Calgary.
