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.

2012-13 UPCOMING EVENTS
GENOCIDAL MASSACRE IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE, ASIA, AND THE AMERICAS
Workshop Sponsored by:
Saturday 29 September 2012
This will be an interdisciplinary and cross cultural discussion of genocide which deliberately moves the discussion out of the twentieth century and European/Western contexts that shape so much of current research. We plan the presentation of papers in two morning sessions, and then a couple of panel discussions in the afternoon to consider comparatively both historical and theoretical issues. The first panel will aim to identify comparative themes between different papers, and the second panel will take a step back in order to consider the language that is and can be used around genocide in the pre-modern period and in contexts that may be either distinct from or only indirectly related to European and/or colonial powers.

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."
