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.
IN THE NEWS
Dr. Antonela Arhin, who teaches courses on diaspora, transnationalism and human trafficking at the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies, is the recipient of the 2015-16 Inaugural Sessional Lecturer Superior Teaching Award, conferred by the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto, and which recognizes some of the FAS's most exceptional sessional lecturers for their contribution to undergraduate education. Students describe her as an incredible instructor who’s extremely knowledgeable, passionate and supportive. In the words of one student: “I have had the great pleasure of working with an array of talented and dedicated professors. None, however, have been as inspiring, or formative in my academic life as Dr. Antonela Arhin.”
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.
All events take place at room 100A at the Jackman Humanities Building, 170 St. George Street, Toronto ON M5R 2M8 except where noted otherwise.

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.

"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."
