Research Updates

Newly published in the Global Social Justice Journal are articles by ASCED member Jamie Whidden and ACSED associates Marta Núñez Sarmiento (University of Havana) and Terry Gibbs (Cape Breton University).  This work comes out of discussions held at the second international workshop on comparative migration studies co-organized by ACSED, and hosted by the Juan Marinello Institute in Havana, Cuba.

In February 2016 ACSED members and collaborators submitted a grant application for a major new research project on "Itineraries of African Canadian Memory: Slavery in the Minas Basin."

A lasting outcome of our first international workshop on comparative migration studies is the essay collection Migration, Globalization, and the State (Palgrave 2013), edited by ACSED member Rachel K. Bricker.


In Fall 2015, David Tabachnick joined our campus as a McCain Visiting Professor, sponsored by ACSED and the Department of Politics. Dr Tabachnick was a guest presenter at the Social & Political Thought Graduate Colloquium, and met with regularly with Acadia scholars as he carried out research on his current project: "Multiculturalism in Canada and the United States after September 11."
