Our collaborations are focused on seven areas of research excellence: Borders, Community-University Partnerships, Migration & Indigeneity, Mobilities, Narratives, Political Behaviours, and Research Creation.

Research groups meet to discuss work-in-progress and readings, apply for research grants and co-author work; organize conferences, graduate student roundtables, and webinars; network with scholars across North America, Europe, and Asia, and organize other public-facing initiatives such as an international arts competition and documentary film screening. Our research groups are open to all of our affiliates, including faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and community partners. If you’d like to explore ways of becoming involved, simply email the research group coordinator.
