In December last year, this prize was awarded to the literary scholar, PETER PETRO, who lives in Canada. He was awarded the prize for his translations into English.
The Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center is pleased to invite you to the 2020 Summer Seminars, presented by the John and Helen Timo Foundation. This exciting series features interactive presentations with some of the most prominent Carpatho-Rusyn American scholars working today.
The six seminars are thematically split into two groups:
- Great Carpatho-Rusyn Americans

These are all live events that include the opportunity to ask questions in real time.
The seminars are free to attend, but registration and a free Zoom account are required.
