Passages: The Magazine of the Migration and Diaspora Studies Initiative features reflections from our award-winning faculty and students about some of the events relating to movement, mobility and memory that MDS has hosted over the course of the academic year.

Special thanks to:

Tiffany Liu, the 2015-16 TD Graduate Fellow in MDS, whose research on Chinese Restaurant Entrepreneurship and Zimbabwean Migrant Workers in South Africa is featured in the magazine.

Ajay Parasram, who contributed a reflection piece on #Refugees Welcome Ottawa and has facilitated Carleton’s reading group in Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies since 2014. Congratulations are also due to Ajay for securing a tenure-track position in Colonialism, Postcolonialism, and Development at Dalhousie University, where he will be cross-appointed to the History department and the International Development Studies Department. We wish him continued success in his new position.
