The Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies (CDTS) was established in 2005 as a hub of excellence that enhances undergraduate and graduate life at the University of Toronto by speaking directly to students' experiences of migration and diaspora through an interdisciplinary lens drawn from both the social sciences and humanities. The work of the CDTS is comparative, qualitative and historically driven, and provides policy insights on pertinent issues in the world today.
Third Space: Journal of Diaspora and Transnational Studies is a bi-annual open access, peer-reviewed publication committed to interdisciplinarity and critical scholarship as it engages in the studies of belonging, migrations and crossings, memory, archive(s), nationality and postcoloniality, transnational knowledges, art, public and material cultures, social transformation, and all of the rich narrative possibilities therein. Affiliated with the Center for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto, it is also a space where student scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds can share, celebrate, and broaden the diversity of their knowledge and experiences.
GUEST LECTURE SERIES 2017-18
At the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies, scholars and students explore the profound implications of vast global movements of people, ideas and things. The Centre brings U of T’s strengths in the humanities and social sciences to bear on questions of migration, diaspora, homelands and belonging across different ethnicities and cultures. Comparative, qualitative and historically-driven in their approaches, our experts provide critical insights on policy issues affecting multicultural societies.

"The great thing about the DTS program is that, whether you consider yourself a member of a diaspora or not, you will find the subject matter to be equally relevant for Canadian society and the international arena. As a student from the Mississauga campus, one of the best features of the program is its inter-disciplinary and cross-campus nature. This allowed me to take courses and meet professors I would have otherwise never encountered."
