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 published by Palgrave).

EventsDr. Wanda Thomas Bernard was in residence from January to March 2013 as the Harrison McCain Foundation Visiting Scholar, her visit 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 spoke to classes, participated in panel discussions, and held small group and individual meetings with students. Her presence on campus inspired many in our community to work for a more inclusive and just society here in Nova Scotia, where some of the legacies of racism still persist.
