In May 2012 ACSED co-sponsored a second International Workshop on comparative research into global migration. Held in Cuba at the Juan Marinello Centre and the University of Havana, the Workshop brought together Cuban and Canadian scholars to move forward comparative analyses of migration, and to finalize plans for a volume of essays (now forthcoming from Palgrave).

EventsDr. Wanda Thomas Bernard will be on campus January−March 2013 as the Harrison McCain Foundation Visiting Scholar, her visit being co-sponsored by ACSED and Women�s and Gender Studies. A renowned researcher and probably the leading expert on the lives of African Nova Scotians, Dr. Bernard has published extensively in the areas of race, racism, violence, and the health of Black families and communities. Dr. Bernard will be available to speak to classes, participate in panel or other discussions, hold small group or individual meetings with students, or chat informally. Ideally, she would like her presence on campus to help create a community of people thinking about ideas related to her work. She is also glad to be a mentor for Black students on campus who have few Black professors to work with.
