Does your research agenda connect the outer edges of otherwise established disciplines? Do questions of citizenship and displacement, of multiculturalism and cultural production, provoke you to think creatively in terms of method and theory?  Amid an ever changing political landscape, where in which questions of race and ethnicity butt up against the decomposition of tired binaries, the MA & PhD Collaborative Programs at the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies sets the context for inventive lines of original research. The Collaborative Program is distinctive by being interdisciplinary as well as comparative.  Whilst raising questions about diasporic communities in Canada, this is not the primary focus of the Collaborative Program.  Rather, the Centre takes Toronto as a window onto the world to understand the nature of diaspora and transnationalism elsewhere in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Global South. Come to our Open House and meet our Faculty:

Professor Kevin Lewis O’Neill (Director): Diaspora and Transnationalism; Religion in the Americas; History of Religions; Ethnographic Inquiry.
Professor Anna Shternshis: Yiddish Literature; Soviet and post-Soviet Culture and Literature; popular culture; Diaspora studies.
Professor Kenneth MacDonald: Nature, society and environmental change; Diaspora and Transnationalism.
